ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The Missouri Governor’s office and the St. Louis County Prosecutor’s Office are not keeping in touch, according to a spokesman for Robert McCulloch.
McCulloch’s spokesman says the prosecutor’s office has not had any contact with Gov. Nixon’s office in a month.
News of this apparent lack of communication comes as the community remains on edge, waiting for the grand jury decision in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
The strained dynamic between Nixon and McCulloch dates back to the beginning of the case. For weeks there were questions about whether Nixon would appoint a special prosecutor for the case, with some groups demanding he do so. At one point, McCulloch said if Gov. Nixon doesn’t want him on the case then he needs to make the call and say so.
McCulloch’s spokesman said it may be hard to know what’s going on if no one is talking.
News 4 reached out to Nixon’s office for a comment on the matter but has not received an answer in return.
