The U.S. investigation into world football governing body FIFA is modeled after an operation against an organized crime gang.The highest level of FIFA, throughout the period covered by the investigations, was the body's Swiss president Sepp Blatter.Loretta Lynch, who began the investigation before she was named U.S. Attorney General, said as much as she unveiled the first indictments.Those targeted in last week's indictments were not the first FIFA executives served.Weinstein said former FIFA Vice President Jack Warner's two sons – now cooperating witnesses – led the investigation to Chuck Blazer.Now, prosecutors appear to be focused on a $10 million payment South Africa made to a body controlled by Warner before the country was awarded the rights to hold the 2010 World Cup.
