State Police: No evidence of Saints wiretapping
Question of the Day
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Louisiana State Police investigators have found no evidence that the Saints or general manager Mickey Loomis rigged Superdome wiring so opposing coaches’ radio communications could be intercepted.
“This has been an intensive investigation, and after numerous interviews we have determined that there is no evidence that state laws have been violated,” State PoliceCol. Mike Edmonson said Monday after meeting with Saints owner Tom Benson in New Orleans to brief him on the status of the probe.
“This is based on what we know today. If any new allegations would come up we would certainly pursue that,” Edmonson said. “This is not anything to do with the FBI or the U.S. Attorney’s office. We find out whether or not there’s any evidence to show criminal wrongdoing and base it on state law.”
“We looked at every single person we could,” he said.
Incidentally, Edmonson met with reporters in the Benson Tower, a downtown New Orleans building across the street from the Superdome and owned by the Saints’ owner. The high-rise houses numerous state offices, including the New Orleans office of the State Police.
“He said he felt that way all along, but certainly respects the law enforcement side of it,” Edmonson said.
The allegations against Loomis, made by people who spoke anonymously to ESPN, claimed the general manager had the ability to eavesdrop on opposing teams in the Superdome from 2002 through 2004, the last season before Hurricane Katrina caused extensive damage to the Superdome.
