Meridian Township releases Nassar investigation report

Local News

The results of an in-depth investigation into the handling of a sexual assault by Larry Nassar in Meridian Township are in.

The investigation was conducted at the request of Nassar victim Brianne Randall-Gay, who was sexually assaulted by Nassar in 2004 during medical examinations and treatment for scoliosis.

Meridian Township officials brought in an independent investigator to answer questions Randall-Gay had concerning how the initial police report and detective’s investigations were conducted.

Randall-Gay said one of her main goals of this investigation was to “gain an understanding of what transpired in her case so that she could continue her healing process.”

The 88-page report goes into exhaustive detail and concludes that it does provide answers to her questions and fills in some of the gaps relating to how and why the initial investigation in Randall-Gay’s complaint produced the result it did.

The report didn’t reveal many new details. But it includes an interview with Andrew McCready, who investigated Randall-Gay’s allegation that Nassar had molested her. Nassar told police that he was performing a legitimate medical procedure.
  
McCready says, “I believed his lies.”

The investigator concludes that Randall-Gay’s questions were answered in the course of this investigation.

Meridian Township officials will present the report Tuesday.
