Nolan, who has dementia, was armed with a steak knife before White allegedly used a Taser on her. She fell to the ground and hit her head.
She died at Cooma Base Hospital.
Speaking to the media before his death, Webb thanked the detectives who had “worked around the clock” over the past seven days in the “evil incident” involving Nolan.
“The matter has now gone to court and I have nothing to say other than that the Nolan family has been informed of this development,” Weber said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Mrs Nolan and her family tonight.”
Nolan didn’t make it through the night.
The process must remain appropriate, fair and free from bias, Weber said, adding “full confidence” in the investigation.
White remains suspended with full pay. Webb explained this was because White was innocent until proven guilty.
“It’s one thing for everyone in the police force to be traumatized, while other police forces are there 24/7 to protect and care for the citizens of NSW.”
The commissioner said she did not see footage recorded by the video camera that White carried with him. But she heard comments allegedly made in the video that are believed to be at the heart of the investigation.
“I’ve heard what’s on that tape, and it’s up to the court to decide … I’m concerned about what that will reveal and that will be proven in court like any other court business,” Weber said.
