Ex-prosecutor To Spearhead Investigation Into Flint Water
LANSING, Mich. (WWJ/AP) - Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says a former prosecutor and a former head of the Detroit FBI will play key roles in his office's investigation into Flint's water crisis.
Schuette issued an update on the investigation Monday morning, saying in a statement that all involved "will do our job thoroughly and let the chips fall where they may."
Schuette says Todd Flood, a former assistant prosecutor in Wayne County, will spearhead Schuette's investigation and serve as special counsel. He'll be joined by Andy Arena, who led Detroit's FBI office from 2007 until 2012.
The announcement comes ahead of a Monday morning news conference.
Schuette, a Republican, announced Jan. 15 he would investigate what, if any, Michigan laws were violated in the process that left Flint's drinking water contaminated with lead.
