John Eaves, the chairman of Fulton County, Georgia, called
today for a criminal investigation into R. Kelly, who was
recently accused of running a “cult” and holding women against their will. Kelly
has denied the allegations.

Eaves, who is running for mayor, cited new evidence found by
the police department as reason for opening an investigation,
according to Buzzfeed News. “Today, I
am asking District Attorney Paul Howard and his investigative
officers and prosecutors to fully review the report of the John
Creek Police and follow every lead—no matter where it leads, or
who it implicates, and bring those persons to swift justice,”
he said in a statement.

But TMZ reports that the John
Creek Police department say they do not have any new evidence
concerning the case and reportedly have no reason to open a
case on Kelly.

On August 4, Fulton County officials issued a letter to Live
Nation requesting that R. Kelly’s upcoming performance in the
county be canceled. The show, at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater
which is owned by Fulton County but controlled entirely by Live
Nation, will go on as planned on August
25.
