HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut's attorney general says his office and his counterpart in Tennessee are investigating a charity that raised money it said would go to those affected by last year's school shooting in Newtown.

Attorney General George Jepsen wrote a letter Monday to Tennessee Attorney General Robert Cooper Jr. about the 26.4.26 Foundation and its co-founder, Robbie Bruce. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the letter.

Ryan Graney, another co-founder of the foundation, told the AP last week that Bruce has been unable to account for more than $70,000 in foundation money. She filed complaints with the FBI and the Tennessee attorney general's office.
Bruce hasn't responded to repeated attempts for comment.

In his letter, Jepsen offers assistance in the Tennessee investigation and says he also is seeking contact information for Bruce.
