An Oakland Community College public safety officer, under a police probe, was found dead of a suicide.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office confirms they were and continue to investigate the officer even after his death. But, declined to give more details.

However, sources tell us, campus administrators got the Sheriff's Office involved after they noticed weapons missing from campus police. It's unclear what the officer was doing with the weapons or what his plans were. But it was deemed serious enough to go beyond internal review.

We are told, in interviews just days ago with investigators, he didn't deny the accusations against him.

He was not yet charged with any crime.

But, the 57-year-old went home, left a suicide note and was later found in a Genesee County park according to police incident reports.  

Oakland Community College released a statement which reads in part:

"Our sympathies go out to the family during this difficult time. In light of his passing and given the fact there was an investigation and no criminal charge was made at the time of his death, the college will not speculate or comment further."

We are not naming the officer at this time.
