A former student of Dean Runkle’s has come forward claiming he touched her leg while alone in his car. This is the same student who later got a call on her answering machine where a man told her she’d end up “like Amy Mihaljevic.”
Here are her words, posted on Facebook:
Dean Runkle, i hate you for taking me for ice cream in your car
and putting your right hand on my left thigh…you are so disgusting, Dean Runkle. I remember
you smiling and opening your glovebox for something. You were not like
everyone else that calmed me when going thru Steele doors early~ you are
not going to be okay~ not anywhere you go. Do you understand what you
did to my life? I dont care if you were Amy’s actual murderer or not-
there are too many similarities- why did you touch my leg?
CALLED MY HOUSE, LEFT A MESSAGE ON OUR VOICEMAIL (mini tape
recording), and said “you’ll end up dead like Amy Mihaljevic” I
need to know because i cannot move on.
