A former public corruption official is calling for an investigation into State Attorney Marilyn Mosby's financial records.  Former chief investigator James Cabezas wrote to the state prosecutor asking him to look into Mosby's omission of three companies on her financial disclosure.  Mosby's 2019 statement leaves out her ownership of Mahogany Elite Travel, Mahogany Elite Enterprises and Mahogany Elite Consulting.  Her frequent travel over the past two years has drawn attention to her overall financial picture.

Attorneys say that the same officer has been named in another high-profile excessive force case that involved the in-custody death of Tyrone West in 2013, the officer is being identified as Jorge Omar Bernardez-Ruiz.
