State Police Won't Investigate MLK Panel

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A spokesman for the Arkansas State Police says troopers have declined to open a criminal investigation into the state's Martin Luther King Commission.

Spokesman Bill Sadler told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that troopers decided against investigating the commission because the Legislative Audit Division could not find anything missing from its office.

Commission Director DuShun Scarbrough asked the police agency in March to investigate why former employees and affiliates removed eight boxes from the office and why computer data was erased.

Sadler says documents showed that a computer was loaned to The College of Aspiring Artists under an agreement with the commission and was returned upon request.  He says no one could tell the state police or the audit division what had been in the boxes or whether anything was still missing.
