FBI agents sent to home of State Sen. Katrina Robinson, agency confirms

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed to FOX13 that agents were sent to the home of State Sen. Katrina Robinson Tuesday morning.

FOX13 was the only station there as agents were at her Southeast Memphis home.

The FBI would not say why they were at Robinson’s home and referred all questions to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Neighbors who did not want to show their faces on camera told FOX13 they were left in the dark with very few answers.

This is the second time FBI agents have been out to the home in several months. In late February, federal investigators searched Robinson’s home and business.

“I really didn’t have any thoughts.  I figured they’re probably just doing their job, maybe someone reported or complained about something, maybe it was a rift with someone, I know things like that occur sometimes,” said a neighbor who did not want to show her face on camera.

FOX13 broke the story back in February when agents searched Robinson’s home and business.  Investigators were removing boxes and computers from The Healthcare Institute on Winchester Road several months ago.

According to her website, Robinson secured a $1.6 million federal grant for the vocational nursing school she founded.  Back in February, nursing students who attend the training school told FOX13 agents questioned them about whether they were receiving grants for the program.

No one answered the door when FOX13 went to Robinson’s home Tuesday.  The state senator is running for re-election.  Her neighbor describes Robinson as a role model for others in the community.  That’s why she said she couldn’t understand why agents were at the home.

“She’s a great neighbor, haven’t had any problems with her.  She’s at homeowners association meetings.

A representative with Edward Stanton’s office said Janika White is representing Robinson.  She did not return our phone call.
