Report: FBI Agents Visit Home Of Snowden’s Father

The Allentown Morning Call updated its story on Edward Snowden’s father to reflect that FBI agents had visited his Pennsylvania home.

The Morning Call now reports that a short time after stepmother Karen Snowden refused to comment on her stepson, two FBI agents from the Allentown office identified themselves to a newspaper photographer outside the home.

The newspaper also updated its story to include a brief interview Lonnie Snowden, Edward’s father, had with ABC News on Sunday, in which he said he is still “digesting and processing” the news about his son.
