Guam - The chairman of the Legislature's Committee on Public Safety is asking the attorney general to conduct a preliminary inquiry into the possibility that the evidence in the possession of the Guam Police Department might have been tampered with. Senator Adolpho Palacios is talking about a leak of a video capturing a barbecue at the Department of Corrections last year.

He says the evidence, which in this case is a laptop computer, was confiscated by GPD in connection with the Arlen Feranco homicide investigation and has been in GPD's possession ever since. He says the video footage aired last week came from the hard drive of the same laptop computer.

"In this DOC barbecue footage release, they didn't deny that it could've come from there. They said it might have been copied off before they confiscated the laptop...that's where I want the AG to look into it," wrote the senator.

Last week, GPD said the laptops that were confiscated are packaged in paper bags, sealed with tape and initialed by the officer that confiscated them.
