Georgia Official Calls for a Criminal Investigation Against R. Kelly

Georgia Official Calls for a Criminal Investigation Against R. Kelly

Kelly "unequivocally denied" the allegations in a statement via his lawyer, who vowed to "work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name".

In a statement prior to the press conference he said "A detailed local investigation by the John Creek Police Department has provided key information that we believe is enough evidence that gives the Fulton County District Attorney's Office all it needs to advance a criminal investigation of the well-known allegations".

It was last month that BuzzFeed first reported that Kelly "held women against their will in a cult" at a house he was renting in Johns Creek.

The Grammy-winning singer is accused of having sexual relationship with Joycelyn Savage and several other women in an arrangement in which he allegedly controls them and cuts them off from the outside world at his Atlanta-area compound.

Eaves said if cops saw fit to hand something off to prosecutors, that suggests a possible felony took place.

During a press conference held on August 11, 2017, Eaves, who's running for mayor of Atlanta, told reporters, "A detailed local investigation by the John Creek Police Department has provided key information that we believe is enough evidence that gives the Fulton County District Attorney's Office all it needs to advance a criminal investigation of the well-known allegations".

A spokesman for the John's Creek Police Department said in an email to The Independent that "there is absolutely no new evidence against R Kelly". The Fulton County official is now urging the district attorney to "investigate the matter and leave no stone unturned". "We let them know what was going on due to the high profile nature of the incident and figured they would be getting calls about it", said Byers.

The Fulton County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to approve a letter to Live Nation requesting the cancellation of Kelly's upcoming concert.

R. Kelly denied the allegations in BuzzFeed News' report and one woman said she was fine. Jocelyn Savage responded with a pair of videos claiming that she's happy living under Kelly's tutelage.
