Ewing Officer Suspended as Authorities Investigate His Daughter’s Death


An investigation into the death of a 3-month-old child has her father, a Ewing officer, on suspension.

According to Mercer County officials, on December 5th, Hailey Rose, suffered a catastrophic brain injury and was ultimately transported to a pediatric intensive care unit, where she succumbed to her injuries on December 13, 2018.

Officials say the prosecutor’s office is investigating Hailey’s cause of death.

The Ewing Police Department has since suspended Daniel Bannister (Hailey’s Father) with pay, pending further investigation.
