The FOX 8 I-Team obtained documents showing that the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation began an inquiry that concerns the assets of the legendary late-golfer, Charles Sifford.

Sifford died earlier this month in Northeast Ohio at the age of 92.

Back in 1961, he broke the color barrier on the PGA Tour. He won twice on that tour, as well as winning the 1975 Senior PGA Championship. Last November, President Barack Obama awarded Sifford the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

A letter from Cuyahoga County Sheriff Frank Bova requested the assistance of BCI.

The I-Team also found court documents from last September that indicate Sifford had been diagnosed with dementia.
