Michigan State University has yet to comply with a week old demand from Special Counsel in the Attorney General's office for physical evidence.

Last Saturday, the Special Counsel investigating how MSU handled sexual abuse allegations against former sports doctor Larry Nassar demanded immediate production of physical items belonging to William Stampel.

Stampel was dean of MSU's College of Osteopathic Medicine where Nassar worked, and reached and agreement with Nassar on new protocols the doctor must follow after complaints in 2014.

No one ever enforced those protocols and Stampel has resigned as dean, but is still employed by the university and is home on medical leave.

Agents of the Attorney Generals office visited the Provost's office in the Hannah Administration building late this afternoon along with Michigan State Police to discuss the matter.

They would not provide any other statement beyond saying their visit was related to MSU not complying with the request for evidence.
