GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Federal investigators say they will continue to investigate an outbreak of a dysentery-like illness after failing to conclude it was caused by a single source.

There were 136 cases of shigellosis reported in Genesee County last year, a huge increase from the typical 20 cases usually seen.

The investigation began amid the water crisis but a federal study was unable to determine it was caused by tainted food or water.

The outbreak also included cases in Saginaw County.
