Godbee: Evidence Removed From Crime Lab

DETROIT (WWJ) – The cleanup of chemicals in the now-closed Detroit crime lab has been completed, according to Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee.

An investigation still continues into why evidence such as live ammunition and case files were left at the lab when it closed in 2008.

“Everything is packaged and it will be moved off-site, the appropriate way, and then at that point Michigan State Police can continue their investigation,” Godbee said.
