Fox4 still mulling decision on Aguilar

Fox4 reporter Rebecca Aguilar remains suspended with pay while her station continues to deliberate what to do with her.

"The matter is being investigated," says a New York-based spokesperson for Fox4, who asked not to be identified. There will be no further comment for now, the spokesperson said.

Aguilar, a 13-year-veteran of the station, was ordered to leave the Fox4 newsroom on Oct. 16th after her controversial parking lot interview with 70-year-old James Walton, who was buying a new shotgun at a sporting good store after killing two would-be burglars in three weeks time at his West Dallas salvage business. The events have triggered a heated debate among detractors and defenders of Aguilar and Fox4.

A well-placed insider at Fox4, who also requested anonymity, confirmed and clarified the later disciplinary actions taken against three off-camera Fox4 staffers who also were involved with the story. One received a three-day suspension late last week, and another a two-day suspension. The third received a warning.

All of those staffers now are back at Fox4
