FLINT, Mich. (AP) — A former FBI agent who investigated the Flint water scandal says his team was moving toward new charges when new prosecutors stepped in and took over. Andy Arena was ousted in February, and special prosecutor Todd Flood was removed in April. Arena tells The Detroit News that no one spoke to him to understand how he was doing his job. He’s a veteran law enforcer who has investigated mobsters and former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.

Police believe the 36-year-old Bostle took a bus to Georgia on June 12. She will eventually be returned to Michigan to face a manslaughter charge and other charges.
