Federal authorities have launched an investigation into the finances of bankrupt Brooke Corp.

The court-appointed special master for the Overland Park-based banking and insurance services provider told The Kansas City Star that FBI agents recently carted off several boxes worth of documents. An FBI spokeswoman confirmed the agency was investigating but declined to comment further.

Brooke was one of the nation's largest franchisers of property and casualty insurance agencies before filing for Chapter 11 protection in October.

Banks and other lenders have filed lawsuits against the company and former officers, accusing them of diverting funds to their own use. The company's founder, Robert Orr, has denied wrongdoing.
