A law enforcement interview with a key witness to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown doesn’t appear to be included among thousands of pages of documents released after a grand jury decided not to indict a Ferguson, Mo., police officer in the case.
The Associated Press reviewed more than 5,700 pages of documents released by St. Louis County prosecutors, but found no transcript or recording of a two-hour FBI and county police interview with Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson, who was with the 18-year-old 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. READ MORE
