INVESTIGATORS SAY THEY’VE UNCOVERED FRAUD AT FAMU

The 100

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida authorities investigating the death of a Florida A&M University drum major say they have uncovered possible employee fraud and misconduct.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement sent letters Tuesday to the head of the FAMU board and the head of the state university system, telling them investigators had uncovered potential violations of law as part of the probe into what is believed to be the hazing death of a Marching 100 band member.

An FDLE spokesman would not discuss details of the investigation, but confirmed it will now be handled separately from Robert Champion’s death. He died Nov. 19.

The letter from FDLE said the possible fraud and misconduct involves employees at the school as well as “persons associated” with the university.
