On March 18, 2006, Otto Zehm had an encounter with several police officers at a convenience store. Two days later, he would die after never regaining consciousness.
On Oct. 4, 2006, Spokane County Prosecutor Steve Tucker announced that he didn't have enough evidence to charge any of the officers. But he said that could change based on an independent investigation by the FBI that had already turned up new evidence.
"They are out a ways from giving a final conclusion. I’m going to have to wait until their investigation is complete or I’m going to look pretty stupid," said Tucker.
Make that a long ways out. Seventeen months after that statement and two years after Zehm died, the investigation hasn't been completed.
How do you think this will be resolved? Do you still care?
