Ongoing Investigation Is Still Going On In The 38 Studios Investigation [VIDEO]
An open ongoing criminal investigation is still going on into the state’s failed $75 million deal with former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s video game company.
Colonel Steven O’Donnell made the comments on the day several groups called for an independent investigation into the 38 Studios deal.
According to The Herald News, O’Donnell said the criminal investigation is under review by state police and state Attorney General Peter Kilmartin.
It is also unknown whether former House Speaker Gordon Fox, who was speaker when the deal was made in 2010, is being investigated.
Fox, a Democrat, was sentenced in June on unrelated corruption charges in June after declaring himself a disgrace and saying he had been driven by greed and “just plain stupidity.”
On Thursday, a spokeswoman for Kilmartin stated that the office continues to review the information about the 38 Studios deal given to it by the police.
Schilling pitched for the Baltimore Orioles, the Houston Astros, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Arizona Diamondbacks, before ending his career with Boston in 2007. His company, 38 Studio’s went bankrupt in 2012, leaving taxpayers on the hook.
