A Georgia Official Is Calling For A Criminal Investigation Into R. Kelly


Kelly "unequivocally denied" the allegations in a statement via his lawyer, who vowed to "work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name".

"Today, I am asking District Attorney Paul Howard and his investigative officers and prosecutors to fully review the report of the John Creek Police and follow every lead-no matter where it leads, or who it implicates, and bring those persons to swift justice", he said in a statement.

TMZ claims, however, that its calls for information from the police department turned up no new evidence against the singer.

However, it seems that this is truly only the beginning of Kelly's troubles, because Fulton County, GA chairman John H. Eaves has called upon the Georgia DA to launch a criminal investigation based on new evidence he has seen from the John Creek Police Department.

During the press conference, Eaves added that the state of Georgia 'will not allow our young girls and young women to be preyed upon by predators or anyone who aims to brainwash and strip them of their human dignity and their right to be free'.

"You have to ask for food".

Buzzfeed News reports that county commissioners have also tried to cancel R. Kelly's upcoming Atlanta show, in the wake of allegations that the singer has kept girls against their will.

Kelly has repeatedly denied the allegations and one of his alleged "captors", Jocelyn Savage, released a video coming to the singer's defense and saying that she's living with him by choice. Activists have also pressured local radio stations to stop playing Kelly's music.

Earlier Friday, Johns Creek Police Lt. Chris Byers told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that "there is no new evidence in the closed investigation".
