Madison County Sheriff’s Office Candidate Under Investigation By FBI
MADISON COUNTY (KFSM) — The Madison County sheriff confirmed Thursday (Jan. 14) that his captain and chief deputy is under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Sheriff Phillip Morgan said Robert Boyd has been under investigation since about Jan. 4, but hasn’t been arrested.
Boyd is running as a Democrat for the Madison County sheriff seat. His opponent, also a Democrat, is Rick Evans.
The sheriff said he couldn’t elaborate on the investigation into Boyd, but believes it’s a tactic to make him look bad during an election. Morgan said Boyd’s name will be cleared in the next few weeks.
