Prosecuting Attorney: No Timeline for Michael Brown Investigation
CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) – St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch says don’t expect any details on the Michael Brown case any time soon.
At a news conference Wednesday, McCulloch said the FBI and the county are doing simultaneous investigations – interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence.
He said there’s an overwhelming amount of evidence in the case.
“When we have all of that information, we’ll analyze that information, we’ll look everything over, and absolutely everything will be presented to the grand jury,” McCulloch said.
He said then the grand jury will decide if there are any charges that should be filed, what charges, and against whom.
McCulloch said if there are charges, evidence will be made public during the trial. If there are no charges, all the evidence will become public record at once.
“If there is an indictment return, then all of that information, all of that evidence will eventually be made public throughout the course of that prosecution,” he said. “Every bit of it will become part of the public record, but it will be done according to the rules.”
There is no timeline for when the investigation will be complete, but McCulloch said it will definitely be more than two weeks.
