MARION, Kan. (KCTV) - The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has confirmed it’s taking the lead in the investigation of what happened in Marion County.
On Friday, Marion Police raided the Marion County Record and seized phones and computers. Yesterday, KBI spokesperson Melissa Underwood said that Marion Police and the Marion County Attorney had asked to KBI to join an investigation into allegations of Identity theft. An agent had been assigned on Tuesday to assist in the investigation.
Now, KBI appears to be distancing itself from the raid. They confirm they were part of the initial investigation, Underwood says that the agent did not apply for the search warrant and was not part of the raid. The KBI is now investigating how the raid took place, analyzing the steps and processes.
Police raided the newspaper, the Vice Mayor’s home, and the home of the owner and publisher of the paper. Publisher Eric Meyer claims the raid was a contributing factor in his 98-year-old mother’s death. Joan Meyer was the co-owner and shared the home with her son. She was home when police raided. Eric Meyer said his mother struggled to sleep and eat following the raid. She died the next day.
“How dare they?” asked Eric Meyer. “How dare they take a 98-year-old woman and have the last day of her life be holy hell.”

Police gone crazy-insane.
Remember to back your local Blue.
Zero accountability for Leftists now in any major city and I’ll assume the perpetrators were at best government workers and at worst Welfare recipients.
…even after they kill your dog and mother.
I saw a headline that there was a potential story coming out about the Chief.
Of course waiting to get the whole story isn’t important anymore. Let’s just jump to conclusions.
This is a very weird story.
Sounds more like they were trying to protect someone applying for a liquor license who may have had a DUI conviction. Does Hunter Biden have any business in Kansas?
The left were silent when Project Veritas was raided.
Perhaps. Either way, those cops should be charged with Manslaughter.
A simple phone call to the son and maybe 2 detectives could have solved all of this, with no issues.
But it would appear that the Marion Chief and his officers have taken a page from the FBI manual about a show of force.
Back the Blue...suckers.
“Of course waiting to get the whole story isn’t important anymore. Let’s just jump to conclusions.”
There have been several posts here on FR about this story and news stories elsewhere. Basic details are known. Police Dept. has lots of questions to answer so does magistrate who signed off on search warrant.
Conclusions can be made at this point.
Oh bullSchiff Tardtoid, if we wait on your schedule the story and it’s facts will be “old news”.
I don’t know what the hell to think. This is KS, my home state. Sounds like the leftist goons are here going after us honest, patriotic Americans. Never thought I’d see something like that in my state. Am I next because I post on FreeRepublic? Makes me wonder.
In another article I read it was the Police Chief that raided the paper to stop publication of an article about HIM
Seems that they were also investigating the new police chief.
When they act like the FIB/KGB, they they should be disbanded and defunded.
Do I need to second that motion or have others already done so?
