JOHNS CREEK, GA - New information uncovered by law enforcement has raised the level of concern in the allegations against R. Kelly sexually exploiting and holding young girls and women against their will at his Johns Creek home.
Fulton County Chairman John Eaves called for a full criminal investigation by the Fulton Co. District Attorney's Office on Friday.
Eaves said that Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard has received a file from the Johns Creek Police Department regarding allegations surrounding R. Kelly. (Read Eaves' full statement below)
The family of a Johns Creek woman has claimed that the woman was being held against her will at one of Kelly's home. The woman has released a YouTube video saying she was there on her own free will.
Eaves believes that police have been able to get new information in the case.
"I have not been privy to this file nor do I have a desire to know the contents of this file, but it has been transferred from police to the DA's office," Eaves said.
No criminal charges have been filed against Kelly and Johns Creek Police Lt. Chris Byers said Friday, "There is no open investigation against R. Kelly. We investigated a complaint earlier this year. It was closed due to no criminal allegations from anyone being made.
