Woodall said he made the request on Friday and will meet with the SBI today to discuss the investigation.
“I told them I’d like them to look in to any academic or computer fraud that may have taken place, any forgery that may have taken place, any conspiracy that may have taken place to commit any of those crimes or conceal any of those crimes,” Woodall said today. “Of course, they can look beyond that….This would be very extensive. They could go in a lot of different directions.”
Woodall said he was swayed to request the criminal investigation partly because it appears that UNC-CH professor Julius Nyang’oro was paid to teach summer school courses in which classes were not held and no supervision took place.
