Department of Justice Issues Statement Concerning Ronald Greene Investigation

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Louisiana

SHREVEPORT, La. - United States Attorney Brandon B. Brown and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Douglas A. Williams, Jr., release the following statement in connection with the Ronald Greene investigation:

“The Department of Justice has an open and ongoing criminal investigation into the incident that resulted in the death of Ronald Greene.  The investigation is being handled by Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), along with career prosecutors in the United States Attorney’s Office and the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice.  The investigation has been comprehensive and those conducting the investigation have followed all credible leads.  If the investigation reveals prosecutable violations of any federal criminal statutes, the Department will take appropriate action.  While the investigation continues, recent reporting citing sources suggesting that the FBI has questioned people about the awareness of certain facts by Governor John Bel Edwards is inaccurate.”
