University of Louisville Professor Michael H. Martin found dead after being questioned by police about missing funds

University of Louisville dental professor Michael H. Martin was found dead in his office hours after he was interviewed by university police for allegedly misusing a university credit card.

Michael H. Martin’s credit card was for large grant

The credit card was for a $353,875 grant that Martin directed that was funded by the National Institutes of Health, according to university records.

Hebert said Friday that two School of Dentistry employees — Joan Scott, the unit business manager, and Gary Dryden, the assistant dean for finance — were suspended without pay in connection with that investigation.

Scott was suspended for three days, and Dryden for five, Hebert said, but he described both as “good employees.”
