The FBI released a heavily redacted document on Rolling Stone journalist Michael Hastings, Monday, which revealed the law-enforcement agency is continuing to investigate what it characterized as “controversial reporting” by the journalist, who died in a late-night car crash in Los Angeles in June.

The FBI turned over the three-page document to Al Jazeera and Ryan Shapiro, a doctoral candidate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who specializes in FOIA research, in response to a joint-Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed against the agency.

In a declaration released with the records, Denny Argall, the FBI’S public liaison officer, wrote that after the agency searched for responsive records it located one “cross reference” file pertaining to a pending criminal investigation. The FBI would not comment further about the nature of the probe.

The papers revealed that the FBI still considers Hastings’ work highly sensitive; even the title of the case file has been withheld under a FOIA exemption that claims that the information, if disclosed, could interfere with an ongoing law-enforcement investigation.
