Probe into Florida A&M death uncovers possible 'financial irregularities'

"It became apparent (from) some of the people that we interviewed (that) the financial irregularities had to do with the band travels and other sports and administrative components of the university," he said.

"To say it's systemic would be premature, but I will say again, it's not just isolated to this one program (band) that we're primarily dealing with today," Bailey told CNN.

His department sent letters Tuesday to the heads of the university board and the state university system to inform them that authorities have begun a separate inquiry based on the new information.

Bailey said it is "too soon to tell" how much money may be involved. Completing the investigation will take an extended time, he added.

Faculty and students are cooperating, but the department is having some difficultly in finding certain documents, he said.

Yes, FAMU just started their law school in Orlando a few years ago.

FAMU has been a basket case for years. Their athletic department was busted a few years earlier for blowing large sums of money....ended up firing a bunch of higher ups

FAMU is the old-money black school in Florida. They have some huge deep pocket alums that can pay to keep things quiet for a long time
