"Since releasing the video, homicide Det. Sgt. Brian Borg said he has had many calls and in now investigating new leads."

hi,
this sentence was extracted from a today's newspaper and I wonder what's the purpose of the preposition "IN" in this context.
Could it be a typo? Could they have wanted to say "IS"?
thanks.

I'd say that it's a typo. That's the only explanation that makes sense.

With your eagle eyes, JC, you should be a shoo in for a job as their editor. :)
