One year later, Emory rape investigation still under wraps
News


ATLANTA (WXIA) -- One year ago, Emory University Police alerted students that a rape had been reported at a fraternity house.

Fraternity and sorority social activities were suspended for a month while police, the university and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon National Chapter launched separate investigations.

So far, the outcomes of those investigations have not been made public.

The police investigation has been completed, but Emory University Police and the University say there are still more steps in the legal process – a year after that reported rape, though one legal expert said rape investigations usually take a few months.

It was the SAE house that a female student reported she was raped at about 10:30 p.m. on Halloween 2014.

The university alerted students that Emory University Police were investigating, and the school’s interfraternity council suspended all social activities for a month. 11Alive News has also contacted the SAE national headquarters in Evanston, Ill., but we have not heard back.

Emory is the subject of a federal Title IX investigation into the way sexual assaults are dealt with on campus.

That investigation has been going on for nearly two years, so the wheels of justice are moving very slowly when it comes to sexual assault cases.
