A Texas homicide investigator was fired for admitting sexual relations with a key witness in the murder of Harris County sheriff’s deputy Darren Goforth, the Houston-area cop shot 15 times while fueling his patrol cruiser in August.

That key witness was also Goforth’s lover, admitting to a 15-month affair with the married deputy.

But it didn’t take her long to move on to Harris County Sergeant Craig Clopton, who was assigned to investigate the capital murder case until he admitted earlier this month that he’d had consensual sex with the key witness.

Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman called Clopton’s actions “unethical and inexcusable” and terminated the detective’s employment barely two weeks after the bombshell disclosure in court.
