Woman murdered after reporting man for sexual harassment

The university student went missing in the middle of a text conversation with her sister and her body was found when one of the two suspects led police to it.

Quote:
A Clark Atlanta University student who was found dead in a park had filed a police report describing unwanted kissing and touching days before she went missing, authorities said.

The man she filed the report against is now one of two people accused of her murder.

Alexis Crawford, 21, vanished from her off-campus apartment more than a week ago and was found dead in a park in nearby Dekalb County on Friday.

Her death was the result of asphyxiation, the Atlanta Police Department said Saturday in a news release that cited the medical examiner's office.

Police identified the suspects as Jordyn Jones and Barron Brantley -- both 21. One of the two suspects led investigators to where her body was found, Police Chief Erika Shields told reporters.

"While a motive has not been clearly established, the department did take a police report from Alexis Crawford on October 27, and this is a few days prior to her being reported missing," Shields said. "In this report, Alexis described unwanted kissing and touching from Barron Brantley."

Jones is the victim's roommate and friend, police said. Brantley is the boyfriend of Jones.

Brantley was booked into the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta on Friday and is accused of murder along with three probation violations and "hindering person making emergency telephone call," according to information from the Fulton County Jail.

Jones was booked Saturday and faces a murder charge, according to jail records.
Perhaps a plausible fear of exactly this type of result is what keeps many women from disclosing to anyone except a couple of very close friends in confidence that they have been groped, harassed, or sexually assaulted at the time it happens.

a) Many victims of other crimes also do not report them for fear of retribution.

b) How did the perps know she had filed a report? /know they needed to off her? Oh.I see- her room mate and confidant ratted her out.

Fear of death? Does this happen frequently?

It doesn't matter whether it happens frequently or not.

I'm sure that the fact that this was an unusual occurrence will be of great comfort to her family.
