One section specifically seeks emails and other forms of communication between NIU's longtime police chief, Donald Grady, who was fired last month, and NIU Vice President Eddie Williams.
The warrant specifically seeks records related to NIU criminal background checks on residents of an area housing development called Eden's Gardens, in which Williams has an interest. It also asks for communications between Grady and Williams, the chief of operations and executive vice president of finance and facilities, regarding the development.
"Separate from his university duties, Dr. Williams has developed affordable housing resources in the DeKalb community," Williams' attorney, William Sullivan said in a Friday statement.
Williams has no idea why he or the project is the subject of any government interest."
A statement from NIU on Friday said Williams was taking a leave of absence "until resolution of the investigation to avoid any appearance of conflict or any question concerning the university's response."

Eddie Williams, NIUs executive vice president and chief operating officer, said in a phone interview Thursday evening that the school acknowledges and takes seriously the assertions and concerns raised in the editorial. The NIU Police Department is overseen by Williamss office.
The university takes such expressions very seriously, Williams said in a written statement released Thursday evening by NIU. In keeping with university practices and standards, a comprehensive review will be undertaken which will include an evaluation of the assertions and concerns raised by the (Northern Star) editorial board.
The process should take about 30 days, Williams said in the statement, and the university will not comment further until the process is done.
