The final Department of Energy Inspector General report on the incident still has not come out yet.
But on Friday, Beth Sellers, the deputy director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory who was at the center of the investigation, resigned her post.
In her statement, Sellers said, “You may soon read news coverage about an issue involving the laboratory. A family member of mine was awarded a consulting agreement with the lab in the fall of 2012. At the time, this was not properly disclosed for full evaluation of potential conflict of interest. I realized this mistake several months later and immediately requested a review from lab counsel and audits and ethics.
