FBI Apologizes for Press Release That Gives False Credit to Head of Connecticut Office

The FBI office in Connecticut issued an unusual apology after sending out a press release with false information about the office’s new head, Patricia Ferrick said.

The Hartford Courant reports that the Sept. 23 news release incorrectly credited Ferrick for playing a key role in an investigation she wasn’t involved in.

“Ms. Ferrick left the ranks of management [at FBI headquarters in Washington] in 2005 and transferred to the New Haven Division after being selected primary investigator of a high-profile case involving the governor of Connecticut,” the news release read.

Turns out, Ferrick didn’t investigate the case, according to the Courant.
