Former Morris County prosecutor Bob Bianchi said that in the University of Utah’s student, Lauren McCluskey did more than she would ever have to do to get the attention of the police.
The family of a Utah college student who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in October last year, is making a $56-million lawsuit against the school for “deliberate indifference” to her calls for help before she passed away.
Lauren McCluskey, 21, was shot seven times by her ex-boyfriend, convicted sex offender Melvin Rowland, 37, as she walked back to her dorm from a night class on the 21st of October. Later, he killed himself.

McCluskey reported, Rowland’s “abuse,” “dangerous” and “threatening” behaviour toward the head of the police department and the Salt Lake City police department for a three-week period, but no effort was made to stop harassment, or to keep him out of the campus, and the complaint was filed on Thursday, said, according to The Daily Beast.
“No one has been disciplined or held accountable to, the head of the police in the case,” his mother told ESPN, according to Deadspin. The same culture prevails in the university campus by the police. There has been no significant change.”
The 21-year-old student in a relationship with a much older, Rowland, came to an end when she found out that he had lied about his name, age, and background.

Utah has been released making recommendations to the university regarding a student’s safety following her murder, but did not find “any reason to believe that such a tragedy could have been prevented,” Deadspin reported.
Just a few hours after McCluskey’s death, the university has allegedly been achieved-and, ultimately, close to $60,000 for the advice of a marketing and communication firm, to assist in maintaining the image of The Salt Lake Tribune reported.
