Cop Killer’s Widow Speaks Of Warning Signs

Posted: Updated:
Jersey City, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Jersey City is still mourning the loss of fallen hero Officer Melvin Santiago after he was killed in a fatal shooting over a week ago.

Now more information is coming to light about the man responsible for the rookie cop’s murder, Lawrence Campbell.

Campbell’s widow, Angelique Campbell, said there may have been warning signs that her husband was capable of this kind of act and that these signs were actually brought to the attention of the Jersey City Police Department. She said that she had filed three different reports with the police siting her concerns for his drug use and his erratic behavior that she said had become so alarming that she thought he was a threat not only to himself, but to others.

“I reached out to so many people, family, friends that loved him, and my exact words were ‘I know he’s a grown man, but you guys got to help me save him, save his life’,” she recalled.

Angelique showed Chasing New Jersey the three different police reports that she had filed one which was filed only two months ago on May 20, 2014.

Angelique said that she had kicked Lawrence out of the home two months ago for his change in behavior and said he could come back once he got help for his drug use.

According to arrest records, Lawrence Campbell was recently released from prison in January. He had three prior drug convictions, but Angelique said he had cleaned up and was trying to find a job. However, two months ago is when she says things started to change for the worse.

“I saw behaviors that weren’t really him, ya know old behaviors,” she said.

Angelique confirmed that she never filed a restraining order because she says Lawrence never physically harmed her.

Chasing New Jersey also spoke exclusively with Lawrence Campbell's sister.  Check out that interview here.
