CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Chicopee city councilors will decide next week if they want Attorney General Martha Coakley to investigate Chicopee's Mayor and the leaked photos of murder victim Amanda Plasse's body.
Chicopee Mayor Michael Bissonnette stands by his word he did not intentionally lie about knowing about leaked photos of Amanda Plasse.
He says a possible investigation into his response to the photos is just politics.
"You know it's a month to go before the election so I'll let people draw their own conclusions and do their own math as to why now," Bissonnette said.
"Everything, everytime there's an election of any type it's always politics and they always look for dirt on one another normal," said Chicopee's Barbara Kovarik.
Six Chicopee city councilors announced Thursday they are considering calling on Attorney General Martha Coakley to investigate the officers who took the photos and wanted and the mayor himself.
"The inconsistencies has appalled a lot of people. A lot of people are talking about it and being a representative of Chicopee I thought it was my right and duty to stand up here today," said John Vieau, Chicopee City Councilor.
Two officers were reprimanded after taking pictures of Amanda Plasse's body after she was murdered in August 2011.
The councilors say they want the officers and the mayor to be held accountable if an investigation reveals new or additional wrongdoing meanwhile the family of Plasse remains quiet.
Still grieving the loss of a 20-year-old girl.
"They have to deal with the death of their daughter and now they have all this going on. It's heartbreaking," said Springfield's Louise Keeler of Springfield.
Plasse's mother called me to say she'll make a formal statement next week I spoke with another family member who says they did not ask city council to do what they did yesterday and they did not want to comment on the situation further.
22News spoke with Plasse's mother Friday who will make a formal statement on Tuesday. We also spoke with another family member who didn't want to be identified but said she didn't know the city council was calling for an investigation and they didn't ask them to do it.
