Yakima Police Detective’s Conduct Costs Him His Job

A Yakima Police officer is no longer on administrative leave as the department investigates his conduct during the Yakima Canyon double murder case in 2012. The detective has been fired, according to Yakima Police Chief Dominic Rizzi.Rizzi says Detective Geoff Gronewald had an inappropriate relationship with a victim’s ex-girlfriend and shared confidential information with her. In December 2012, two people were found murdered in a car in the Yakima Canyon. One of them was Michael Eby.

Investigators say Gronewald knew Eby before the murder and was even texting him the morning of the incident. Eby was an informant for the detective.

The investigation found that Detective Gronewald started an intimate relationship with Eby’s ex-girlfriend, Shannon Rosales, shortly after the murder. That’s part of why he was fired after the investigation.
