Hulu’s “Death in the Dorms” – A network hasn’t focused so much on a murder-related topic since Investigation Discovery offered us episodes like Wives With Knives and Twisted Tales of My 9 to 5. Death in the Dorms, a Hulu series produced by ABC News Studios, examines six horrific homicides that occurred at six different institutions. Yes, the topics are crime and higher education.
We’d like to know exactly what happened to the people who killed them because there isn’t much that can be done for the victims of these atrocities other than to share their stories without their consent. We’re going to investigate the whereabouts of the murderers from Death in the Dorms, like searching through a trash can for a retainer you misplaced. You should ask yourself this question, which is equally significant: Should gruesome murders be arranged according to a theme?
The University of California, Los Angeles, is located in the upscale Westwood district of California (UCLA). It “feels safe,” as one student told ABC News. But in September 2015, 21-year-old Andrea DelVesco was stabbed to death and then set on fire in her apartment. Any evidence had to be concealed by the fire.
Fresno State University student Alberto Medina entered DelVesco’s residence, committed a burglary there, and then stabbed her 19 times. He was detained and found guilty because of the stolen goods. He is now incarcerated for life without the possibility of parole.
In August 2012, Christian Aguilar, a student at the University of Florida, started dating Erika Friman. According to ABC News, Pedro Bravo, 20, who had dated Erika in the past and had known Christian since eighth school, was the only person who objected to this.
Page after page of writings detailing Bravo’s love for Erika and his strategies for getting her back was written in a comprehensive and unsettling journal. When he could not achieve that, he searched for “murder statistics, alibis, and sleeping pill deadly doses.” The remains of Aguilar were found duct-taped. Bravo, who was convicted in August 2014 and given a life sentence, is thought to have poisoned him.
George Wesley Huguely V
Yeardley Love, a student at the University of Virginia, was killed; this was widely reported. The 22-year-old lacrosse player was discovered dead in her Charlottesville, Virginia, residence in May 2010. Later on, her boyfriend, George Wesley Huguely V, would be found guilty of second-degree murder and sentenced to 23 years in jail.
According to CBS News, Huguely expressed regret to Love’s mother and sister throughout his testimony. I should never have gone over to her place that night, and I take responsibility for what happened to her, he added.
Kenny Kwan, Charles Lai, Raymond Lam, and Sheldon Wong
When freshman Chun “Michael” Deng died following a fatal fraternity hazing in December 2013, Baruch College classmates Kenny Kwan, Charles Lai, Raymond Lam, and Sheldon Wong were blamed. According to the New York Times, the Glass Ceiling rite featured repeatedly tackling a pledge to the ground as they were blindfolded and had to wear a cumbersome backpack.
Due in part to the fraternity brothers’ six-hour delay in transporting Deng to the hospital after being rendered unconscious and ultimately dying from “multiple traumatic injuries to the head,” Deng was knocked unconscious. The four brothers entered a guilty plea in 2017 for hiding evidence. Despite Lam’s time served, both received prison terms. They’re all now on probation.
After a night of drinking, Samantha Josephson followed the advice that we were all given. On March 29, 2019, the University of South Carolina student, age 21, phoned an Uber and entered when it came. Sadly, her Uber driver was not the one operating the vehicle.
She was stabbed 120 times by Nathaniel Rowland, who then dumped her body 65 miles away in a “remote part of Clarendon County.” Rowland was found guilty thanks to a preponderance of the evidence. Although he was given a life sentence in jail in July 2021, he continues to claim innocence.
According to the WKU Herald, Western Kentucky University freshman Melissa “Katie” Autry was viciously raped, severely beaten, and set ablaze in her dorm room on May 4, 2003, shortly after arriving from a fraternity party. She passed away from injuries-related complications three days later.
Later, police detained Bowling Green, Kentucky residents Stephen Soules (20) and Lucas Goodrum (then 21). With his guilty plea, Soules was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole. Goodrum was exonerated despite Soules’ testimony that he was the “primary perpetrator.”
