Because of the investigation by the FBI, Pulaski County Sheriff’s Detective Jason Woodruff has been suspended until a review by the merit board. According to the press release, Woodruff was the officer in charge of the sheriff’s office evidence room. The evidence room is located in the justice center.
Woodruff was questioned by the FBI on Feb. 24 and released without incident.
All individuals are innocent until proven guilty.
