The Grand Junction Police Department will not be opening up a case against Homefront Heroes President Phyllis Derby because of a lack of evidence. Four of the five former board members met with investigators from the Grand Junction Police Department to discuss their issues, Thursday. Former board member Sherry Logsdon, who resigned from Homefront Heroes, says the board will not pursue a case against Derby.
They had accused Derby of misusing money from the organization. Investigators listened to their concerns, and described what kind of evidence they would need to pursue a case. Officials say there's not enough proof to open an investigation.
Huffman would not elaborate on what evidence the board presented to investigators. Board members say they do not want to hurt Derby in any way, since they were all close friends. Despite the fact that there is no formal investigation underway the group still has questions.
Homefront Heroes is still operating as normal with an interim board. Derby says she is just glad this is over and hopes the community will continue to support Homefront Heroes. She adds they will just continue moving forward, never backwards.
