Galgiani Requests US Attorney to Review Case

April 29, 2015

Editor,

 In your editorial dated April 28, the Record stated “it is time to bring in an independent agency to investigate all the facts around the handling of these remains”. I completely agree. That is why I am calling for a thorough public review of all the files, records and communications relating to the cases of Joann Hobson, Chevelle Wheeler, Phillip Martin, Kimberly Billy and Cynthia Vanderheiden.

 Since attorneys have filed a Motion in federal court to unseal public documents related to Joann Hobson, I believe the United States Attorney’s Office is the appropriate agency to review these cases.

 Only by turning over all relevant information to a trusted federal agency for review will questions related to the handling of these cases be resolved. I look forward to the Sheriff’s Office agreement to this important request.
