INDIANAPOLIS  —  Governor Eric Holcomb is calling a journalist’s report on a man’s death at a Plainfield Amazon warehouse back in 2017 “irresponsible and deliberately misleading.” 

The governor yesterday denied that he quashed an investigation into the man’s death as to not offend Amazon as it was looking for a home for its new second headquarters. 

Holcomb released a statement saying he told the reporter the claim was false, yet the reporter published it anyway. 

The report, in Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, said the state clearly shifted the blame in 59-year-old Phillip Lee Terry’s death.
