Absolutely! I tried to find out information online if they were suing, but couldn't find any evidence of it. Very baffling.
The dorm situation upset me as well. Back in the dark ages when I lived in the dorm, it was like Fort Knox. Complete with "night security", where you had to produce your ID to even get to the stairway.
I remember another case where a very mature/adult student (probably 25+) was allowed to live in the dorm and he ultimately had full access to kill a student there. I think it brought to light that many dorms did not have age restrictions in place.
In Lauren's case, the fact that this criminal, practically middle-aged man, was able to live among students as young as 18 years old is chilling. I can't believe some astute dorm dweller didn't blow the whistle on the fact that he appeared to be living there unauthorized.
No shred of victim blaming here but I would really like to know more about this relationship. I know the murderer (what was his name?) said he was a master manipulator. I must have missed the very beginning....he wasn't a student was he? How did he present himself to Lauren where this cute, socially active, athletic, young woman would even give him a second glance? He was twice her age (admittedly, lying about that fact), physically intimidating and "creeped" other young women out (as her friends attested to).
Infuriating case, all the way around.
