PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The father of the youngest victim of a 2003 nightclub fire that killed 100 people has met with the new U.S. attorney for Rhode Island to ask federal authorities to investigate.
Dave Kane met for about 40 minutes Monday with Peter Neronha (neh-ROW'-nah), three members of Neronha's office and an FBI agent.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office would not comment on the discussion.
Kane would not be specific. He says they discussed decisions that were made by state and local investigators before, during and after the fire. He says they seemed motivated by what he calls "an attitude of protecting each other."
Kane says the prosecutors did not say whether they would investigate, but said they would consider it.
