The former executive director of the Mississippi River Corridor-Tennessee, a Memphis nonprofit conservation group, has been indicted on federal fraud charges, The Daily Memphian reports. Diana Threadgill falsified documents that allowed the agency to be reimbursed more than $1 million in grant funding it was not entitled to receive. She was arrested by federal agents this morning. In the indictment, the Tennessee Comptroller’s Office identified $1.1 million in improper reimbursements received by the MRTC from March 2011 to March 2017 and alleged that Threadgill, who served as head of the nonprofit, ordered the falsification of documents.
