ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - KMOX News has learned more about that major embezzlement case involving the number two man at the St. Louis County Health Department.

County Police Chief Tim Fitch tells KMOX, investigators now have received all the financial records they’ve subpoenaed that involve dealings with Ed Mueth.

Mueth was suspected of setting up a bogus computer company that took in more than three million dollars from the county.

Chief Fitch also tells KMOX the FBI has been asked to conduct a forensics investigation.

After Mueth came under suspicion, he took his own life.

One of the big questions Fitch and his department want to find out is if Mueth had an accomplice.
