The Baltimore police officers union is asking State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to appoint a special independent prosecutor for the Freddie Gray death investigation.

Fraternal Order of Police local president Gene Ryan told Mosby in a letter Friday that the union is concerned about her ties to Gray family attorney Billy Murphy.

Murphy was among Mosby’s biggest campaign contributors last year, donating the maximum individual amount allowed, $4,000, in June. He was also on Mosby’s transition team after the election.

The union says none of the six officers suspended in the investigation is responsible for Gray’s death. The 25-year-old black man died one week after suffering a severe spinal cord injury in police custody.
