FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) - Webster County supervisors say the county assessor went to her office and had files deleted off the county computer after she’d been fired by the county Conference Board.

The supervisors also say she hasn’t turned over to the county a recording of the Oct. 27 meeting at which she was terminated. She was later reinstated and placed on paid administrative leave, pending a hearing.

The Messenger (https://bit.ly/1mIdQ9N ) says the supervisors’ report has been given to the Webster County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating the actions by Jeanette Thanupakorn (tuh-NOOP’-uh-gahn). She has repeatedly declined to comment about the matter.

Officials say about 300 files were deleted by a clerk at Thanupakorn’s direction and that most of them were personal. Supervisor Merrill Leffler says it’s believed some of them were county files.
