Three Eastern Michigan University officials booted, including college president, over coverup of black on white rape/murder.

After a girl was raped and murdered in her dorm room, University officials concealed it from the student body even though the killer was still on the loose. Officials told the student body that the victim died of natural causes. A safety buliton from police designed to alert the student body was shredded and never passed out.

Three Eastern Michigan University administrators, including the president, have been forced out, months after top school officials were accused of covering up the rape and slaying of a student by publicly ruling out foul play.

President John Fallon was fired, and Vice President of Student Affairs Jim Vick and Public Safety Director Cindy Hall lost their jobs at the 23,500-student university, the chairman of the school’s governing board said Monday.

Board of Regents Chairman Thomas Sidlik also said the board would put a letter of discipline in the file of university attorney Kenneth McKanders.

The body of the slain student, Laura Dickinson, 22, was discovered Dec. 15 in her dorm room. At the time, university officials told her parents and the media that she died of asphyxiation but that there was no sign of foul play, despite evidence to the contrary.
