(KSL News) An organized crime investigation into the FLDS Church could start again if the state can see the evidence seized from polygamous leader Warren Jeffs.

Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff tells the Deseret Morning News there is some evidence that could possibly aid the case, but the FBI has custody of most of it.

The attorney general's office is investigating Jeffs and the FLDS Church for possible financial crimes including fraud and offshore accounts.

Jeffs, meantime, is on trial for rape as an accomplice. His trial continues Monday.
