Guam - Guam Fire Department fire chief John Salas is refuting allegations that he was ever under investigation for stealing money from the victims of the Korean Airlines crash.
Allegations have surfaced yet again claiming that several individuals in the fire department and some who have retired, were involved in stealing wallets and money from those who died in the tragic airplane crash back in 1997. Chief Salas wants to make it clear that the allegations are unfounded, telling KUAM News that he was never near the KAL crash site and has never been under any formal investigation for such claims.
An investigation into the allegations was launched by Salas' predecessor, David Peredo.
A part of the allegations claimed that once it got out that an investigation was underway several wallets and money were turned into GFD's Internal Affairs Division, but they later went missing allegedly under Salas' care when he was head of IA.
