Statesboro Public Safety Director Wendell Turner is cleared after an investigation into child abuse allegations found no evidence of wrongdoing, said Ogeechee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Richard Mallard. After the Statesboro Police Department received complaints Feb. 21 that Turner had abused a child, the department turned the investigation over to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. That is common procedure whenever an internal investigation takes place, said Statesboro Police Major Scott Brunson.
