Arkansas police destroyed the record of a police investigation of Josh Duggar. Police investigated Duggar starting in 2006 when police was alerted a letter found in a book lent to a family friend.

A producer of Oprah received a tip containing these allegations, which was eventually handed over to Arkansas State Police.

Judge Stacey Zimmerman ordered the investigation destroyed on Thursday. A victim, named only Jane Doe, was worried an unredacted copy of the police report might be leaked, so she requested the record be destroyed.

Springdale Police spokesman Scott Lewis told Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette, "The judge ordered us yesterday to expunge the record... As far as the Springdale Police Department is concerned this report doesn't exist."

The spokesman went on to say that its usually policy to keep these investigation indefinitely.

The statute of limitations has run out on all known allegations on Josh Duggar.

Josh Duggar has resigned his position from the Family Research Council and TLC has pulled the Duggar show from the air.
