BREAKING: Evidence in Locksley Altercation Destroyed

The original notes taken of interviews with witnesses to the Mike Locksley altercation that appear to support claims that Locksley punched and choked assistant J.B. Gerald were destroyed, UNM President David Schmidly revealed this morning.

 

The Journal for two days had asked to see originals or clean copies of those notes.

University officials told the Journal this morning that the athletics department employee who took those notes didn’t realize they were part of an investigation and that they should be preserved.
“She has destroyed her initial notes,” Schmidly said.

Copies provided to the media have missing passages, parts are unreadable, and they appear not to show the margins of the originals.
For more on this developing story, pick up a copy of Thursday’s Journal.
