Black College Student Commits Suicide After Her Alleged Rapist Walks Free

The mother of a 21-year-old former college student named Cherelle Locklear is suing William Paterson University. Last November Cherelle was found dead in a dormitory bathroom – from an apparent suicide.

Cherelle reported that she was raped two months earlier, according to a federal lawsuit.

According to the lawsuits Cherelle was raped at a fraternity house – the Sigma Pi house. Sigma Pi is a noted white frat.

In the lawsuit Cherelle’s mom claims that William Paterson “did not engage in even a modicum of the investigation required by law.”

The student who is alleged to have raped Cherelle was never charged or arrested for any crime.
