Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt says investigation still active

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests doubt the 6-month-old priest abuse investigation is going forward.

“It’s gone nowhere and that’s unacceptable,” said Jim McConnell, who heads up the Kansas City chapter of SNAP.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s statement said the investigation is active. They are gathering evidence, talking to witnesses, and hope to finish it in a timely fashion.

McConnell said the attorney general’s office has not answered the group’s offer to help.
