The unfolding of two investigations in Daphne

In January, barely a dozen days after police here announced an arrest in the murder of 21-year-old Brianna Parish, the mayor ordered a new, less-visible investigation that drew objections from both Chief David Carpenter and Capt. Danny Bell.

Mayor Fred Small’s target was the Daphne Civic Center.

Carpenter and Bell told the mayor that his concerns about the Civic Center operations were administrative and not criminal, according to police and personnel records obtained by the Press-Register.
