The mother of Bay Saint Louis Police Chief Mike De’Nardo is still alive contrary to what the mayor says De’Nardo told him days before he killed himself. Bay Saint Louis Mayor Les Fillingame says he learned De’Nardo’s mother did not die last weekend according to our media partner the Sun Herald. Fillingame told News 25 Friday that he believed De’Nardo’s decision to shoot himself may have had something to do with his mother’s death. Fillingame tells the sun herald he is heartbroken De’Nardo would lie about that. De’Nardo shot himself in the chest Thursday outside the Bay Saint Louis police station. Authorities say before the police chief killed himself he was told he was being suspended and investigated.
