Skeptical investigators tried to get deputy in Yantis shooting to change story

An Idaho Statesman review of records in the fatal shooting of Council rancher Jack Yantis finds that Idaho State Police investigators tried but failed to get Adams County sheriff’s deputy Cody Roland to change a key portion of his account. The records also show that the deputies spent time together right after the shooting when they should have been separated, that on-scene security was flawed, and that an EMT tried to save Yantis but couldn’t.
