The Rankin County District Attorney says he's closed an investigation into the school superintendent and a county supervisor.
Rankin County D.A. Michael Guest says Principal Tanza Brown, who is the daughter of Supervisor Wood Brown, was up for contract renewal.
At the same time, Superintendent Lynn Weathersby's son-in-law, John Mauldin, was up for promotion within the county.
There was reportedly a conflict between the supervisor and the superintendent.
It ended when a complaint was filed with the District Attorney's office.
That person felt they might be retaliated against based on the vote of the Board of Supervisors.
News Channel 12 asked Dr. Weathersby about it at Wednesday morning's Rankin County School Board meeting.
"I don't have any statement," Dr. Lynn Weathersby said. "Don't even know what you're talking about."
"I think it's resolved.," said Cecil McCrory, President of Rankin County Schools. "Nobody knows except those two that were in the meeting."
McCrory says the board will not take action on the issue.
District Attorney Guest says his investigation is closed based on the fact that Tanza Brown's contract was renewed.
