LANGSTON — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is examining a computer belonging to a Langston University administrator, the bureau confirmed Wednesday.
The computer had been assigned to Charles King, Langston's vice president for institutional advancement and development, OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown said.
At the request of the Langston University Police Department, OSBI officials are examining King's computer for anything illegal that may be on it, Brown said. Brown wouldn't give the reason for the police department's request.
Langston police Maj. Stan Timmons wouldn't comment on the request, saying he was unfamiliar with the case.
The bureau has not begun the examination, Brown said. Once such forensic examinations begin, she said, they generally take several days or a few weeks to complete.
Langston officials wouldn't comment on King's status at the university.
On the university's website, King's name is not listed on a webpage for his division.
In his capacity as vice president, King was involved with recruiting, marketing and fundraising for the university and maintaining the university's relationships with alumni.
King also served as director of the Langston Community Development Association and was involved with the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.
According to a 2010 Alpha Phi Alpha regional newsletter, King served as a chairman of the Alpha Youth Leadership Academy, a program that brings teenage boys to campus during the summer.
An up-to-date telephone listing for King could not be found.
