SALT LAKE CITY — Dateline will report on the investigation into the death of Lauren McCluskey, a University of Utah student who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend Melvin Rowland in 2018.
McCluskey, who was a track and field student-athlete, broke up with Rowland after he revealed his true name, age and criminal history. She reported to campus safety that he had been harassing her before she was eventually killed.
“The University of Utah failed to protect Lauren,” said Jill McCluskey, Lauren's mother. “We want individuals to be held accountable and an admission of responsibility.”
