Report About Deadly FBI Shooting of Ibragim Todashev in Orlando Leaves Out Information

A long-awaited report on the FBI shooting of Ibragim Todashev revealed a lot of information but not the identity of the FBI agent who shot the Chechen man seven times.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that agent has remained anonymous and wouldn’t participate in an independent investigation by the state’s attorney.

Orange-Osceola State Attorney Jeff Ashton said his concern is about the objectivity of the probe.

“It would have been better if the FBI had brought in local law enforcement as the investigative agency,” Ashton said in an interview this week with the Orlando Sentinel. “When you have an agency investigating itself, there is a natural tendency to assume they’re going to cover. And even if that’s not the case, it’s just better to have an independent investigation.”
