ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Senator Lisa Murkowski sent a letter to the Department of Justice demanding an “objective, thorough and independent investigation” into sex allegations against former VECO head Bill Allen Monday.
The Anchorage Police Dept. began investigating the former VECO executive in 2004 after several underage girls came forward saying they had sex with Allen for money.
One of those women, Paula Roberds, who at the time was 15, told detectives Allen flew her from Washington to Alaska for sex.
The U.S. Department of Justice vetoed a federal prosecution of Allen so the state asked to take on the case. The federal government declined that offer.
