PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - New documents are shedding light on the federal investigation that led a Rhode Island lawmaker to resign his seat.

WJAR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/29TG0y3 ) investigators are looking at a probate case overseen by former state Rep. Raymond Gallison. The Democrat became executor when Ray Medley died in 2012.

An inventory says Medley’s estate was worth $237,000. Medley’s will directed it mostly be divided among several nonprofits. WJAR reports most have never received anything.

A legal notice by the FBI says it seized over $1 million from Gallison’s accounts and from assets in Medley’s estate that were controlled by Gallison.

Gallison has been removed as executor for failing to do his job. The new executor says he believes the assets are more than what the inventory said.

Gallison hasn’t commented on the investigation.
