Someone on the grand jury that is hearing evidence in the shooting of Michael Brown might have been talking about the case to friends.
The St. Louis County prosecutor’s office confirms to the Washington Post that it is investigating the possibility, after a Tweet appeared Wednesday morning from a woman claiming to know one of the members of the grand jury.
“There isn’t enough at this point to warrant an arrest,” the woman with the Twitter handle @thesusannichols typed.
That person later deleted that twitter account but some users saved screenshots of the Tweet.
The members of that jury are not supposed to discuss the case outside of its proceedings, while it hears evidence and considers whether any charge should be filed against Darren Wilson, the officer that fatally shot Brown on August 9. If there has been a breach, the prosecutor’s office could have to start over with a new group.
