ST. LOUIS (KMOX/AP) – Along with the thousands of documents and transcripts of 24 witness interviews released after a grand jury decided to not indict a Ferguson police officer in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, a police interview with a key witness was not provided.
The St. Louis County Prosecutor is explaining why some documents related to the Ferguson grand jury probe have not been released despite promises to lay it all out in the open.
Prosecutor Bob McCulloch has not released transcripts of some 40 witness interviews, including the transcript of the two-hour interview by the FBI and a county police detective with Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson, KSDK-TV first reported.
McCulloch’s office says the FBI requested that some things not be made public because of the ongoing federal investigation.
At issue in that investigation is whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson violated the civil rights of Michael Brown.
