Florida International University released an internal review of the school's emergency alert system in its response to the stabbing death of former FIU football player Kendall Berry. According to the report, it took FIU almost an hour and a half to notify students of the stabbing death.
Berry, a running back on FIU's football team, was stabbed to death in April on the school's main campus. The man accused in Berry's death, 22-year-old Quentin Wyche, has been charged with second degree murder.
The review -- conducted by former U.S. attorney and current dean of the FIU College of Law R. Alexander Acosta -- found that the school's first report to its students didn't address the fact that it was a stabbing, a death, or that the suspect was still on the loose. The first message sent read:
WE HAD A FELONIOUS ASSAULT BY THE RECREATION CENTER SUSPECT AT LARGE TUNE INTO LOCAL MEDIA FOR MORE.
