The investigation into a 911 call that led to the death of a police officer in Clinton, Mo., took a new twist late Thursday night.

CenturyLink, a company that provides telephone services to Henry County, told 41 Action News its system provided the right address when the 911 call came in on the night of March 6.

The day after the shooting, investigators revealed the 911 call originated in Windsor, Mo. But dispatchers sent police to a home around 20 miles away in Clinton, Mo.

After investigating, CenturyLink spokesman Mark Molzen released the following statement to 41 Action News:

“CenturyLink takes all public safety issues seriously, particularly those involving first responders. We conducted a thorough investigation which shows that when the 911 call was placed, CenturyLink provided the correct phone number and address.”
