Interview Missing From Ferguson Grand Jury Documents

(AP) – A law enforcement interview with a key witness doesn’t appear to be included with thousands of pages of documents released after a grand jury decided not to indict a Ferguson police officer in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The Associated Press reviewed more than 5,700 pages of documents released by St. Louis County prosecutors. It doesn’t appear that the documents include a transcript or a recording of a two-hour FBI and county police interview with Brown’s friend, Dorian Johnson, who was with Brown when he was shot. The discrepancy was first reported by KSDK-TV.

The documents include seven video clips of Johnson’s media interviews, as well as a transcript of his testimony to the grand jury that investigated the shooting. The transcript notes that jurors listened to a recording of an Aug. 13 interview of Johnson by the federal and county investigators, but documents released to the public don’t appear to include a separate transcript of that August interview.

“If it’s not there, it’s not there,” Ed Magee, a spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch, said Monday. “I don’t know what was released.”
