Melvin Rowland Biography – Melvin Rowland Wiki

Melvin Rowland is a registered sex offender and the suspect believed to be responsible for her death of Lauren McCluskey, a University of Utah track athlete.

After shooting and killing Lauren McCluskey, he killed himself a short time later following a police pursuit. Rowland was found dead hours later inside a nearby church from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Rowland was convicted of forcible sexual abuse and enticing a minor, both felonies, in 2004, public records show. According to University of Utah Police Chief Dale Brophy, Rowland had disappeared from the Fortitude Treatment Center, a halfway house in Salt Lake City. Police did not have a current address for him.

Earlier October 2018, McCluskey filed a report with university police related to alleged harassment from Rowland. Detectives had been in touch with McCluskey regarding the allegation.

Rowland spent nearly a decade in prison after pleading guilty to trying to lure an underage girl online and attempted sex abuse charges, according to court records.

He was charged with two separate crimes in September 2003, said Paul Amann, the prosecutor on the case.

Rowland had been caught in an online sex crimes sting when a police officer posed as a 13-year-old girl. After he was charged, a woman came forward to report he had sexually assaulted her after a separate online meeting a few days earlier.

Rowland pleaded guilty to enticing a minor over the internet and attempted forcible sex abuse in an agreement with prosecutors, records show. His defense attorney did not immediately return a call Tuesday seeking comment.

Rowland was released from prison in 2012 after serving eight years and has twice been sent back from halfway houses after violating his parole, Utah prison spokeswoman Kaitlin Felsted said. He was most recently paroled in April and was living on his own.
