Tamms Leaks Investigated

Illinois State Police have launched a criminal investigation at the Tamms Correctional Center following leaks to reporters about the process of closing the prison. Spokeswoman Monique Bond said there's an "ongoing investigation into criminal activity," but she didn't go in to detail. However, an employee at Tamms said investigators tried to interview several workers there yesterday and most didn't agree to answer questions.
