COUER D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - The Pinehurst council will hold a special meeting on Tuesday to discuss the police department and public safety. The Coeur d’Alene Press says (https://is.gd/bEO9aI ) the meeting was called in response to a series of articles in the newspaper.
Pinehurst Mayor Bob Jutila confirmed the council will call an executive session to address how the city will proceed in light articles in The Press that called into question the handling of Brianna Cook’s death by city police.
The 17-year-old was found hanging from the shower in her Pinehurst home in October 2013.
Councilwoman Nancy Burkhart says she hopes the executive session will be the start of obtaining answers to questions surrounding the investigation of the teen’s death.
Her mother told the paper she was pleased the council was talking about her death.
