Police Investigate Vandalism to a Memorial to Officer Paul Scuillo

Date: June 24, 2019
Incident Type: Graffiti/Vandalism
Location: Zone 5

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police learned today of the defacement to a memorial of one of its fallen officers, Paul Sciullo, outside the Bloomfield home of his parents, Sue and Max Scuillo.

“On behalf of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police and the City of Pittsburgh I’m saddened to hear of the vandalism at the Scuillo home…the home of one of our fallen officers,” said Police Chief Scott Schubert.

“It’s a shame that Paul gave his life protecting the City of Pittsburgh with his brother officers 10 years ago, to have somebody deface his memorial at the home of his parents, the son who they grieve every day.”

Schubert said Pittsburgh Bureau of Police officers are actively investigating this incident and will hold accountable whoever is responsible for this crime.

The Scuillo family told police they’re doing okay, but were very hurt by the damage to Paul’s memorial.

Police officers did not allow their fallen brother’s family to suffer alone, arriving to thoroughly clean the sign today and return it to its original state.

Anyone who may have any information about this incident is asked to call Zone 5 police at (412) 665-3605.
