PEDC cancels special meeting with private investigator

By  | 

PARIS, TX-- A special meeting with the Paris Economic Development Corporation and a forensic auditor, to reveal the results of their forensic investigation, was cancelled Monday.

The PEDC was scheduled to hear from Danny Defenbaugh, a private investigator who is overseeing the forensic audit of the PEDC.

The firm was hired after the city council received an anonymous letter in March alleging misconduct in the PEDC. Board Chair Rebecca Clifford told the city council the FBI is now involved due to allegations of criminal activity.

PEDC officials have not announced a new meeting date.
