“We’re here to investigate what possible crimes there are, anything to the involuntary manslaughter or death that may have happened to some young person or old person because of this poisoning, to misconduct in office,” he said. “We take this very seriously.”
Flood joined Attorney General Bill Schuette, chief investigator Andrew Arena and deputy chief investigator Ellis Stafford for a media round table Tuesday in Lansing, where they provided an update on the investigation launched last month.
The probe will look at state and local government officials to determine whether any state laws were violated. There is no clear timeline for how long the investigation will take.
Flood added that bringing forth manslaughter charges is “not far-fetched” if their investigation reveals negligence or “breach of duty” in the handling of the water. As the Detroit News also notes, nine people have died of Legionnaires’ disease after the water was switched to Flint River water in April 2014.
