MSU police have requested that the Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette review and investigate into the case of ex-MSU faculty member, Larry Nassar.

According to a press release from the Michigan Department of Attorney General, the request was made by police chief and director Jim Dunlap.

Nassar is facing sexual abuse lawsuits from two former gymnasts, who he treated early in their careers. According to previous reports from The State News, there are as many as 23 allegations he could be linked to.

It is believed the case has crossed into multiple jurisdictions in Michigan, and possibly across state lines, the press release said. This leaves the Attorney General as the best choice for further investigations on the cases.

According to an NBC News report on Monday, Nassar is also under investigation by the FBI. This is because of a complaint made by USA Gymnastics, where Nassar previously worked until last year because of “athlete concerns.”

Victims or anyone with information are encouraged to contact MSU police, or call their toll free line at 844-99-MSUPD.
