Lauren McCluskey, a track athlete at the University of Utah who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend on October 22, 2018, did just that.

Rowland was supposed to return McCluskey’s car, and they were worried he would hurt McCluskey when he did.

Campus police did end up escorting McCluskey to the car exchange, which went off without any acts of violence.

In audio posted online by KUTV, McCluskey is heard telling dispatchers that she is worried that campus police aren’t acting fast enough.

Dispatch responds by telling her campus police has jurisdiction over her case, routing her call back to University of Utah Police.

A report on how campus police handled McCluskey’s case found University of Utah police officers were not familiar with how to conduct criminal background or parole information.

It concluded that campus police had taken McCluskey’s reports seriously, and stated that her death was not preventable. »
