It has been a little more than two months since Executive Vice President Eddie Williams was named in an FBI search warrant. 

The FBI and several federal agencies removed records from the NIU police department in March: according to the search warrant, they were related to Williams’ low-income housing developments in DeKalb. The FBI’s Chicago office tells WNIJ news that the investigation is on-going and there’s no timeline for resolution. NIU spokesman Paul Palian confirms that Williams is still on paid leave. He has been paid about $50,000 during his two months away from his position.
