IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A prominent Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation supervisor has been on paid administrative leave for more than a month because of a personnel matter.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Rob Hansen tells The Associated Press that Special Agent in Charge Larry Hedlund has been on administrative leave since May 1. Hansen says he cannot release any more information about the matter.

Based in Fort Dodge, Hedlund has supervised the agency's work in northern and northeastern Iowa as the top supervisor in one of DCI's four geographic zones. Among other cases, he has helped oversee the investigation into the abduction and slaying of two cousins who vanished while riding bikes last year in Evansdale and were found dead in a wildlife reserve in December.

Hedlund didn't immediately return messages Monday.
