A former Notre Dame football player admits he was the player investigated in a suspected sexual battery case in 2010.
Prince Shembo has admitted that he was the Notre Dame football player who was investigated into the alleged sexual assault of Lizzy Seeberg in 2010.
He has denied the accusations.
She later committed suicide by overdosing on prescription drugs.
Now the girl’s father is speaking out.
During a radio interview on 87.7 FM, Tom Seeberg reiterated his disappointment in the University and the county prosecutor that declined to press charges back in 2010.
Seeberg claims Notre Dame led a “superficial investigation.”
He says he had hoped that because Shembo has publicly acknowledged he was in fact the player accused in the investigation, the public and the University might better understand his fight to learn the truth about what happened in the events leading up to his daughter’s suicide.
Shembo’s lawyer tells the Chicago Tribune that his client has done nothing wrong, and that any suggestion that Notre Dame conducted a superficial investigation is unfair and inaccurate.
