It took nearly a year of investigating for a Michigan State panel to find MSU Museum Director Mark Auslander guilty of plagiarism. Auslander was suspended from his position. The researcher who had his work plagiarized, William Lovis, is a retired professor.
Lovis was doing research on a 500-year-old Bolivian mummy and he claims that when Auslander became the museum director, his research was interfered with. The mummy was returned to Bolivia before any investigations took place
