Utah track athlete identified as victim in shooting

Campus shooting reported at University of Utah

Brophy said there were police reports filed on October 12 and October 13 in Lauren McCluskey's case.

A memorial fund has been established by the U to honor the McCluskey's memory.

Several members of our university administration spoke with Lauren's family last night and I have also reached out to them.

Lauren McCluskey, a track and field athlete at the University of Utah, was found dead on Monday night murdered in a auto near campus. He lied to her about his name, his age, and his criminal history.

Melvin Rowland said during the hearing in 2012 that he manipulated every woman he met in person or online.

More than 100 people attended the vigil in Pullman that was on the high school track.

"This isn't right", Harlan said. "Now you have to leave a legacy as well and take care of each other".

Teammates Eliza Hansen, Mesa Weidle and Raynee Helm-Wheelock also shared a few words about McCluskey. When one broke down and could not continue, another would step in.

"She was just genuine and sweet and she had a relentless determination at practice that showed up every day", Kepler said.




Authorities say the man accused of killing a University of Utah student he had dated was a sex offender and his victim reported him to police.

When the University of Utah football team plays UCLA in Los Angeles Friday, the Utah players will have a decal for their slain classmate on their helmets.

"Lauren was a senior student athlete on the University of Utah track team". She was a star of track and field, and was memorialized at a vigil on campus Wednesday night.

Rowland, a registered sex offender, had allegedly lied about his name, age and criminal history. Brophy said someone picked the suspect up from campus after the shooting. "She blocked hi and his friends" phone numbers and complained to University of Utah police that she was being harassed. "She was such a lovely athlete in so many ways".

Matt and Jill McCluskey, parents of Lauren McCluskey attend a vigil for their daughter on October 24, 2018 in Salt Lake City. Her cell phone was retrieved by a female student who told them over the phone that McCluskey's things were scattered on the ground in a parking lot near student housing. Once at the scene, authorities found a woman dead in a auto.

News of the emergency was released on the university's verified Twitter account Monday night, as well as on the university's Campus Alert page.

After Jill's husband, Matt, called the police, authorities arrived on the scene to find Lauren, shot, in the backseat of a vehicle near the university's south tower of Medical Plaza. Witnesses say he fled the scene on foot. Church on 239 E. 600 S. When police arrived at the building, they hear a commotion and a gunshot in the upstairs of the church.

KSL-TV reports that police learned Rowland was near Trinity African Methodist Episcopal Church, about four miles west of campus near downtown Salt Lake City. The memorial was led by the family's pastor, Steve Van Kuiken.

Her body was found inside a auto, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. Rowland killed himself overnight at a church after police tracked him down, authorities said. Her family has suggested funds collected could support future scholarships for student-athletes in track and field. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and all of those dear to her".
