FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

The people investigating the contamination of Flint's water were in town.

Andy Arena is the former director of the FBI office in Detroit.

He's part of the team appointed by state Attorney General Bill Schuette.

Arena said investigators expect to go back several years to put together a timeline of events leading up to the current problems.

"Was something criminally negligent done here? Should somebody be held civilly liable? Or was it just a series of bad decisions?" Arena said.

His assistant is Ellis Stafford, a former state police inspector and Flint native.

Stafford said they'll get to the bottom of things.

"My friends deserve an explanation. They deserve an answer as to what happened and why it happened," Stafford said. "It might take a while, but we'll get to the truth and we'll get those answers. Just bear with us."

Also under investigation, whether there's any connection between Flint's water and skin rashes.

That's being handled by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
