Families of people killed by police sue Bureau of Criminal Apprehension

Some have waited nearly three years for information on what happened to their loved ones

Five families who are still waiting for information about loved ones killed by police are suing to get that information from the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

They claim the BCA broke Minnesota's data practices law by not providing them information from completed use-of-force investigations within 10 days of their requests.

Some families said they have waited months for the BCA to respond to their requests. One - Dolal Idd's family - has waited for nearly three years - the maximum time allowed to pass before Minnesota's statute of limitations prevents people from filing wrongful death lawsuits.
