No. A person doesn't have to be notified as to a criminal investigation. A person has constitutional rights but that is not one of them.

Now if you are in custody - they do have to give you Miranda warnings before they ask you questions.

However, as to asking you questions otherwise you can inform them you want an attorney present before you answer any questions but they don't have to give you Miranda warnings.
