Second alleged assault victim recants at WSU

The Spokesman-Review
Another alleged assault victim on Washington State University’s Pullman campus has recanted her story. The university said this afternoon that the incident, which supposedly happened early on Aug. 24, did not occur. The person who reported two other assaults, on Aug. 19 and Aug. 24, recanted those allegations last week, police said. The $5,000 reward contributed by university President Elson S. Floyd will be maintained in a campus safety fund to be co-administered by the WSU Police and Women’s Resource Center as reward money for future incidents, officials said.
