Springfield Mayor Mike Houston is repeating what he has said all along… that he did not know about plans to shred police department internal affairs files until after the documents were already destroyed.
And Houston says an ongoing investigation of the incident will show that clearly.
But questions persist following a deposition by Police Chief Robert Williams.
In it, Williams said Houston’s executive assistant Bill Logan was part of a meeting where the file shredding was discussed before it happened.
Logan has said he walked in on a meeting about open records requests, but was not aware of any discussion about destroying records.
