ST. LOUIS – A former private investigator hired by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner has been indicted in connection to what he did while investigating Missouri’s former governor.
A grand jury indicted William Don Tisaby on six counts of perjury and one count of felony tampering with physical evidence.
A 30-page indictment lays out point-by-point accusations which are connected to Gardner’s investigation into Eric Greitens.
Gardner’s office charged Greitens last year with invasion of privacy. The office then dismissed that case after defense complaints Gardner failed to turn over evidence and complaints that her private investigator Tisaby lied.
The grand jury indictment claims Tisaby did – six times over.
The indictment also raises questions about Gardner’s role, pointing out an incident of alleged perjury in which Gardner was present and did not correct the false testimony. Gardner has not been charged in connection with this indictment and has not yet responded to our request for comment.
Tisaby pleaded not guilty at a late afternoon arraignment and was released on his own recognizance.
