FBI officials tell Upper Big Branch miners’ families they may be victims “of a federal crime”

April 22, 2011 by Ken Ward Jr.

We broke the story earlier today on the Gazette’s website about an FBI letter notifying the families of the miners killed at Massey Energy’s Upper Big Branch Mine that they may be victims of a federal crime.

I’ve now posted a copy of the letter here (with the name redacted to protect my source).

We’ll have an updated story in tomorrow’s Gazette-Mail, so stay tuned …
