Who is going to investigate the police killing of Casey Goodson?

Columbus Division of Police tried to hand the investigation over to Ohio's Bureau of Criminal Investigations, but BCI declined to take the investigation. Now, it is back in the hands of CDP.

Columbus Division of Police released a statement on continuing their investigation

The division released a statement saying they would be continuing their investigation, instead of the Bureau of Criminal Investigations taking it over. According to the statement, BCI declined to take the investigation because it was "well underway."

"Chief Quinlan's interest in having BCI involved in the case was based solely on reassuring the public of maximum independence in the investigation of this tragedy," the statement reads. "As he said in his statement earlier today, he has complete faith in CPD's Critical Incident Response Team to investigate this matter fully and fairly. That has not changed."
