EVANSVILLE, Ind. A state official has asked Indiana State Police to investigate the release of the recording of a conference between state auditors and Evansville city officials regarding the city's 2012 audit.

Indiana State Board of Accounts Examiner Paul Joyce told the Evansville Courier & Press on Thursday that he would seek prosecution of whoever released the information. Audit results are supposed to remain confidential until they are publicly released.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says city council member secretly recorded the March 12 meeting and then illegally distributed the recording. He says he informed the city attorney and the state after learning of the recording.

The city sought outside assistance after the 2011 audit criticized the council for inadequately overseeing government financial records.
