The Citadel’s internal investigation into the handling of a complaint about child molester Louis “Skip” ReVille has been delayed up to three months.

Special Counsel Joe McCulloch said the school’s Board of Visitors had hired two firms to conduct the investigation. But one of those firms had become too expensive. The board has replaced it with another firm, but the switch has delayed the investigation, which originally was to be completed by the end of the year.

The board has replaced the firm Manuel, Daniels, Burke International LLC with Margolis, Healy & Associates, McCulloch said. Consultant Anne Franke, of Wise Results LLC, will continue as the second firm, he said.

He expects the investigation to be done by the end of March.

McCulloch is a Columbia attorney who the board hired in August to work as a liaison between the board and the firms conducting the investigation.
