The FBI is investigating the mishandling of remains at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as possible contracting fraud and falsification of records, according to a report in the Washington Post. The paper cites “people familiar with the investigation.”

The report says the probe has been going on for six months, and it is unclear if anybody will ever be charged.

The bureau is looking into issues I raised in over 30 stories I wrote for about burial mixups at Arlington starting back in 2009. My most recent article, in TIME, raised serious questions about the Army’s efforts to fix the problems there.
