San Luis Obispo Will Get a Visit From FBI Agents This Week

A federal investigation into alleged civil rights abuses at the San Luis Obispo County Jail will take a new turn this week, as FBI agents are expected to begin interviewing potential witnesses.

Agents will conduct hour-long interviews between Tuesday and Thursday at Camp San Luis Obispo, according to the San Luis Obispo Tribune. Any county employee who refuses to talk could be subject to a subpoena.

Twelve inmates have died in county custody since 2012. The FBI became involved after the 2017 death of Atascadero resident Andrew Holland. He suffered an embolism caused by a blood clot after he was left in a full-body restraint chair for nearly two days. His family has already spoken to the FBI.
