The University of Alabama has steadfastly failed and refused to demand a full and fair investigation by a special prosecutor into the July 1, 2015, alleged rape of honors student Megan Rondini. The Sheriff and local prosecutors who had the power and authority to pursue justice in Megan's rape case took laundered campaign money from the company of Terry Jackson Bunn, a member of the powerful University President's Cabinet.
Lyn Head, the prosecutor in Megan's case, also took laundered campaign money from the criminal suspect named in Megan's rape report even though her political campaign for district attorney was over and she had been defeated in her election bid.
President Stuart Bell and the Board of Trustees have remained eerily silent on the subjects of Megan's alleged rape and subsequent suicide despite the growing body of evidence that T.J. "Sweet T" Bunn, Jr., enjoyed a special form of immunity from prosecution and protectionism within the Tuscaloosa law enforcement community.
Is this deafening silence tied to the Bunn family's cozy relationship with the University and the University's incestuous relationship with Tuscaloosa Sheriff Ron Abernathy and his wife Leslie? Is it designed to send a direct and overt message to Tuscaloosa's oligarchy that the University will protect its members under the most difficult of circumstances?
Is the University knowingly and willingly facilitating Sheriff Abernathy's cover-up in Megan's case? If so, how and why?
Has the University chosen to elevate and safeguard its strategic relationships with the Bunn family and Sheriff Abernathy over the competing interests in protecting female students from rape and pursuing criminal justice in Megan's case? If so, why?
We will answer these and other burning questions in the Megan Rondini rape case. Stay tuned. The truth on these matters is coming out Sunday.
