PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State University's president is donating $10,000 of his own money to a reward fund for information about the assault of one of the school's professors. Students are also helping getting word out about the incident.
President Elson S. Floyd said in a statement: "I strongly encourage anyone who knows anything about what happened that night or recognizes any of the individuals in the videos that have been publicly distributed to come forward. The police have no interest in arresting anyone who was not directly involved in the assault and will accept information anonymously."
The money will go to any one who provides information that leads to the apprehension and prosecution of those responsible for attacking Professor David Warner. That assault left him in critical condition at a Spokane hospital.
Students at the university are also helping find out who is responsible.
Students from the national organization V-Day are setting up a booth in The Cub Thursday morning. They will being playing the surveillance video after the assault.
The video will be shown from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Thursday and Friday or from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday.
The students will also have fliers on-hand to students who want to send Dr. Warner a message or post fliers in their dorm halls.
