Robert P. McCulloch is the St. Louis county prosecutor.

At a press conference on Wed. Aug. 13th, 2014 with police chief Tom Jackson, McCulloch said:

"Mr. McCulloch promised a thorough investigation but refused to say how long it would take. “There is no timeline,” he said. But he added that all the evidence would be made public, whether or not there was an indictment." [NYT]

"St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley on Friday [August 15, 2014) said he is leading an effort to remove the county prosecutor from investigating the Michael Brown case because he thinks the prosecutor’s personal experiences and recent statements have tainted his ability to act objectively."

McCulloch once prosecuted rock musician Axl Rose.
