Update, 11:17 AM: The names have appeared in a second floor women's bathroom in Butler. We have not received a photo tip of the list, so we cannot verify whether or not it differs from the previous three versions. Please continue to tip us updates of locations and photos.

Update, 4:50 PM: A lot has happened since we took our 1 PM final. Namely:

  • Bwog posted an article containing all the tips they've been sent in the past six days.
  • Spectrum posted that in addition to more instances where the names were written on bathroom stall walls, flyers were put in toilet paper containers. Additionally, Public Safety has begun closing down the bathrooms until all traces of the names have been removed.
  • Jezebel obtained photos of the flyers and posted the first description of the alleged rapists, despite campus media's best efforts to keep them anonymous.

We have reached out to the affected parties and will update this post as events unfold.

In its second appearance today, a list of alleged campus rapists was spotted in a 6th floor Butler women's bathroom. The list consists of the same four names as previous iterations, and was written in the same silver marker as the version found a few hours ago in a Lerner bathroom stall.

Thus far, the lists have all been promptly removed by Facilities, as they are considered an act of graffiti.

As of 2:27 AM, The Lion has confirmed in person that names are still in the stall.

    Why is it OK for someone to make very serious unproven allegations against named individuals? This is a witch hunt and an extreme form of libel.

      Is that it's only literally libel if they really aren't rapists. And we don't know one way or the other.

    does anybody know where I could find the actual names of the students? I have a cousin who is going to Columbia this summer, we are all trying to find out the name of these guys so she would be vigilant of them. Thanks!
