The University of Utah was also the scene of a deadly shooting nearly one year ago, when Austin Boutain fired five shots into a auto, killing 23-year-old global student Chenwei Guo, a computer science major from China.
"At the time that we picked him up on September 17th of 2003, he was attempting to have sex with a 13-year-old child", said former prosecutor Paul Amann, who helped put Rowland behind bars. When the campus lockdown was lifted, police tweeted that they believed the suspect had left the area and was no longer a threat to the campus.
"There's a different perspective now than what I had in the past", Rowland said. "He had no self-control", Amann said on Tuesday.
Police say Rowland killed McCluskey Monday night. Rowland was found dead inside a Salt Lake City church hours later.
"As a campus community, we share grief over this tragic loss of life", University of Utah President Ruth V. Watkins said in a statement.
Rowland spent almost a decade in prison after pleading guilty in 2004 to trying to lure an underage girl online and attempted sex abuse charges, according to court records. His release date was listed as 2013.
"Lauren was informed by a friend about his criminal history, and she ended the relationship with her killer on October 9, 2018", the statement said.
They say she dated Melvin Rowland for about a month before learning he had lied about his name, his age, and his criminal history.
A United States universitystudent's mother heard her daughter's final screams before she was shot on campus, with a former boyfriend the suspect.
University of Utah Police said shots were fired and they did locate the woman deceased in a vehicle.
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah- Students, friends and family held vigils Wednesday to honor the life of Lauren McCluskey.
"Suddenly, I heard her yell, "No, no, no"!" her mother wrote. She said when she heard the news of McCluskey's death she felt like, she had to do something for the family because of the kindness they showed her when her husband passed.
Brophy confirmed that around 8:30 p.m., police "received a phone call from a frantic mother telling us something happened to her daughter". "It was assigned to a detective". He declined to disclose further details on the report. Rowland is a registered sex offender, and he and McCluskey may have known each other before their interaction on Monday.
"Her family is understandably in shock at this news about their daughter". According to her team bio, she ranks 10th all-time at Utah in the pentathlon (3,181 points) and was a named Pac-12 all-Academic team honorable mention in 2017. "They are heartbroken. We have and continue to offer our full support to them at this bad time", she said. "She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed".
Governor Gary Herbert has ordered a pair of investigations following the murder of a University of Utah student. Last October, ChenWei Guo, an worldwide student, was fatally shot during an attempted carjacking. Last night a little before 9 pm, she was returning to her university apartment from her night class and talking to me on the phone.
