Probation supervisor involved with Cipriano murder case suspended by the state
The probation supervisor for a man accused of murdering his father and critically injuring his mother and brother was the latest supervisor to be suspended by the Michigan Department of Corrections.
The MDOC’s new director, Daniel Heyns, has ordered an audit of all of Michigan’s 70,000 parolees and probationers, resulting in the suspension of five employees.
The MDOC has recently been criticized for its apparently flawed supervision of several offenders in high-profile cases around the state.
One of those cases involves Tucker Cipriano, the son of CMU Hall of Fame swimmer Rose Cipriano. He allegedly beat his father, Robert Cipriano, to death with a baseball bat and critically injured Rose and his brother, Salvatore Cipriano, in what police believe to be a botched robbery attempt.
Tucker has been charged with one count of first-degree premeditated murder, one count of first-degree felony murder, one count of armed robbery and two counts of assault with attempt to murder for the beatings of Rose and Salvatore.
Cipriano has been arrested at least five times and had been on probation after being released from Oakland County Jail in February. MDOC records indicate he had been ordered to report to a probation officer twice per month.
He failed to report to his scheduled April 5 meeting with his supervisor. That supervisor has since been suspended.
According to the Detroit Free Press, corrections officials could not keep track of Cipriano and failed to verify his place of residence.
