WASHINGTON, DC - Montana senators Max Baucus and Jon Tester are now asking the government of Singapore to give the FBI full access into the investigation into how Shane Todd died there last year.
Todd died under mysterious circumstances after leaving his job at the Institute of Microelectronics. His death was ruled a suicide, but Todd's parents from Marion believe he was murdered.
Baucus and Tester introduced an amendment on Thursday that would block all U.S. taxpayer dollars from going to Todd's former employer until the FBI is given full access to all evidence and records related to his death.
"This is actually a favor to all of the American people. I think it's a brilliant tactical move in order to get to the truth. We have to apply pressure whatever way we possibly can so we are greatly appreciate of the effort," Shane's father, Ric Todd, said in an interview.
IME received nearly $500,000 in sub-grants from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is based out of the U.S., in 2010.
