New Evidence May Lead To Criminal Investigation On R. Kelly
Breaking news out of Atlanta….
R. Kelly‘s Honeycomb Hideout cult allegations may cause the R&B superstar to end up at the center of a criminal investigation.
According to Fox 5 Atlanta, the Chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners has asked authorities to open a criminal investigation against R. Kelly after discovering concerning new evidence.
Friday, in a news release sent to FOX 5, Commission Chairman John Eaves said investigators have uncovered new information surrounding the allegations against Kelly that’s “severely raised the level of concern.”
Eaves will call for a criminal investigation by the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office at a news conference at 11:30 a.m. FOX 5 will live stream the briefing.
Read Chairman Eaves’ statement released moments before the press conference below:
“A detailed local investigation by the John Creek Police Department has provided key information that we believe is enough evidence that gives the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office all it needs to advance a criminal investigation of the well-known allegations.
Today, I am asking District Attorney Paul Howard and his investigative officers and prosecutors to fully review the report of the Johns Creek Police and follow every lead—no matter where it leads, or who it implicates, and bring those persons to swift justice.
No one should be above the law, because of their income or their zip code. And we will not allow our young girls and young women to be preyed upon by predators or anyone who aims to brainwash and strip them of their human dignity and their right to be free.
Again, as a father of a teenager daughter and a responsible leader in this community, we have a moral responsibility to stand up for people who cannot protect themselves. Today, I am asking our Fulton County Justice officials to do just that. If we won’t protect our young girls and young women, who will?”
