COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - An investigation into a group home owned Muscogee County Marshal Greg Countryman by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation concluded several months ago, but the public has yet to see the results of that investigation.
The results of that investigation into the Invictus Transformational Wellness Center were handed over to the office of Muscogee County District Attorney Julia Slater once it was closed on March 25.
The Columbus chapter of the NAACP is now calling for D.A. Slater to release those findings to the public.
In a letter sent to D.A. Slater, the NAACP says they believe “this is a matter of urgent public safety, and, if the facility is unsafe, citizens have a right to know.”
Slater released the following statement to News Leader 9:
Copies of this letter were also sent to the Georgia Attorney General, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and the GBI.
Countryman said his home currently has four boys and can’t accept any newcomers until Slater’s findings are released. He also said the home has received three As from the state since the investigation.
The GBI investigation was launched on Feb. 6 at the request of the Muscogee County District Attorney’s Office.
