Three St. Louis Community College employees are looking for work after they were let go on Thursday.
The firings were connected a critical report that examined the attack of a student on the Meramec campus last spring. District Police Chief Robert Stewart, Meramec Campus Police Chief Paul Banta and VP of Student Affairs Linden Crawford were all shown the door.
On April 18, 2013 19 year old Blythe Grupe was attacked in a Meramec campus bathroom. College instructor Aurora Hill heard Grupe's cries for help and interrupted the assault, holding the suspect, 19 year old Jevon Mallory, until police arrived.
In their report, investigators cited the school's failure to notify students and staff about the attack. Campus police were criticized for releasing the suspect, then allowing him to return to campus five days later, and for withholding information from prosecutors.
The Board of Trustees of St. Louis Community College had retained Armstrong Teasdale LLP to perform an investigation after concerns were raised about the school's handling of the attack. The full 18 page report is available on the college's website.
