Nation IN BRIEF : WASHINGTON, D.C. : Probe of Foster’s Death to Be Reviewed

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Whitewater prosecutors are reopening some aspects of their investigation of Vincent Foster’s suicide, summoning three rescue workers before a federal grand jury to testify about the scene of the White House lawyer’s death in July, 1993. Two of the witnesses had said that they saw a briefcase in Foster’s parked car where the suicide occurred, according to FBI interview documents. U.S. Park Police, who investigated Foster’s death, recovered no briefcase from the car. Park Police Maj. Robert Hines said that the two rescue workers were simply mistaken. The thoroughness and competence of the initial investigation and the evaluations drawn from it are under review, a source said. Presidential aides’ handling of documents in Foster’s office after the death is also being investigated.
