In a press conference Sheriff Asa Buck said he would like the public's cooperation in this proceedings.

He said, the department has been bombarded with questions since the investigation broke involving former Sheriff Ralph Thomas Jr .and four former deputies.

In the press conference, Buck wanted to make clear he knew nothing of this act prior to taking office.

Sheriff Buck told us the investigation is still ongoing.
