Sheriff McKeithen Issues Statement

Sheriff McKeithen Issues Statement

Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen issued the following statement today in reference to the latest developments in the Martin Anderson case:

At approximately 9 o’clock this morning I was notified by Mark Ober’s office that they were at the Bay County Courthouse in the process of obtaining eight warrants for the arrest of the drill instructors and the nurse involved in the Martin Anderson investigation.

I was advised the charges would be Aggravated Manslaughter by Culpable Negligence. I understand seven of the drill instructors have been arrested at this time.

This has been a lengthy, complex, and intense investigation. Mr. Ober’s office has made the decision to charge these individuals with a criminal offense and they now will have the right to a trial.

Despite continued allegations and accusations of cover up, misconduct, and conspiracy relating to the original investigation by the Bay County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies involved, Mr. Ober’s office has determined these to be false and absolutely unfounded.

It is now time for the attention to be focused on the facts at hand and to only hope that justice will prevail.
