A D.C. Police officer being questioned in a murder investigation is dead of an apparent suicide. Police found Detective Terrence Green dead at his parent's home in Capitol Heights, Maryland on Friday. They believe Green hanged himself.

Green recently received a subpoena to appear before a grand jury. He was expected to testify on the so-called Pizza Mart murder which took place last month in Northwest Washington. Police were questioning Green about his relationship with the suspect in the case, Shanika Robinson. Robinson is charged with the murder of Shahabuddin Rana, the owner of a Pizza Mart restaurant.

Police Chief Cathy Lanier won't comment on the ongoing investigation but says Green had a 'solid reputation' on the force.

Fox-5 news reports Detective Green was married to a fellow D.C. police officer assigned to the third district. He's survived by a young son.
