There have been reports around the Kansas Statehouse that there is an FBI investigation into how contracts were awarded for KanCare, the state's privately managed Medicaid program. As KPR's Stephen Koranda reports, someone has now come forward to say the investigation exists.
Former Republican Kansas state Senator Dick Kelsey says the FBI contacted him and interviewed him several times. He says a focus of the investigation is David Kensinger, a former chief of staff to Governor Brownback.
In 2005, 17-year-old Robert Haberlein and two other people entered a Dollar General store in Bonner Springs. It was late in the day and only one person, 44-year-old Robin Bell, was working in the store. The three overpowered Bell and took her into the back of the store, forcing her to open the safe. They beat her before shooting and killing her.
