There's a lot we don't know, and I certainly recall from the Duke lacrosse case not to prejudge, but this just sounds bad:
The parents of a Northbrook teenager who killed herself a week after accusing a University of Notre Dame football player of sexually attacking her say they feel betrayed by the school they love and that several generations of their family have attended.
Speaking publicly for the first time since their daughter's Sept. 10 death, Tom and Mary Seeberg suggest that the campus police conducted a superficial investigation of their daughter's allegations. They question why, according to a timeline they received from the university, it took police two weeks to interview the player — even after Elizabeth "Lizzy" Seeberg, 19, gave detailed statements and reported receiving a text message warning her about "messing with" the storied football program.
The Tribune story provides a lot of detail about the ND administration dragging their feet about the whole thing. Why on earth would any academic institution want that kind of reputation?
