 ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – There is a lot of speculation about when the announcement of the Michael Brown grand jury decision will be made.  The attorney presenting the evidence says that an announcement may be made by mid-to late November.   Bob McCullouch says that no decision has been made yet.

This is a release to the media from St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Bob McCullouch:

As recently as November 4, 2014 I stated that the Grand Jury in the Michael Brown case was still hearing evidence and had not made a decision. I also stated that I did not expect the Grand Jury to complete its work and make a decision until mid to late November. That timeframe has not changed.

I realize that this is a much anticipated decision and that there is daily, if not hourly, speculation about when the announcement will be released.

Once the work of the Grand Jury is completed and they have made a determination, my Office will advise the public and the media when their decision will be released. Until that notice comes directly from this Office, ANY AND ALL claims of an announcement date or time from any source, especially social media, are rank speculation and should be ignored.
