See A Student Who Killed Herself After University Mishandled Her Rape Report: Suit

A New Jersey student killed herself after her university failed to fully investigate her report that she was raped in a fraternity house at William Paterson University, her mother claims.

Cherelle Locklear, who had been studying at the school since 2012, was 21 years old when she was found dead in her dorm room bathroom on Nov. 22, 2015, according to the text of a lawsuit obtained by

Locklear’s mother, Marquesa C. Jackson-Locklear, said her daughter’s suicide came less than two months after she was raped at the school’s Sigma Pi fraternity house in late September.

Locklear had previously attempted to kill herself on Oct. 15, 2015, about three weeks after the attack, and was hospitalized for five days, her mother said. A few weeks later, she died by suicide.
