Over 140 faculty members at Michigan State University have signed a letter urging the school to hand over the investigation of Larry Nassar to an external agency.
The letter was read on Tuesday during a university council meeting.

The investigation is currently being led by the MSU police department.
Nassar faces several charges, including sexual assault, possession of child pornography and also faces civil lawsuits from women who claim they were assaulted by him.
