CAPE CORAL, Fla. --  A Cape Coral Police detective has resigned from the force following troubling allegations of deception.

Kordelle McKissack reportedly resigned Wednesday after it was revealed that he allegedly lied during the hiring process 13 years ago. He reportedly failed to mention that he was under investigation for allegations of sexual battery.

Cape Coral Interim Chief Dave Newlan says CCPD was never provided with derogatory information pertaining to McKissack by his former employer, the Spring Hill Police Department in Spring Hill, Tennessee.  "Their past Chief of Police, Reggie Pope, provided a very positive letter of recommendation.  If the facts of the Internal Affairs investigation support what was alleged to have been happening at the time, this was patently deceptive on the part of Pope.”

But despite McKissack's resignation, the investigation continues and is now being handled by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.   McKissack had been on administrative leave since March 7, while the investigation was under way.
