   Students at the University of Missouri are being warned to be extra vigilant after a female student reported being raped near campus over the weekend.  

   The student told Residential Life that she'd been raped late Saturday night or very early Sunday morning in the 800 block of Richmond Avenue. University officials say they're working with the victim to make sure she receives the resources and assistance she needs.  

   Additional details about the crime haven't been released.  Police say their investigation is ongoing.

   COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The president of the University of Missouri system is seeking an independent review of how the university handled allegations from a swimmer that she had been sexually assaulted by a football player more than a year before she committed suicide.
   The move Sunday by UM System President Timothy Wolfe comes after an ESPN story questioning the University of Missouri's response to the alleged sexual assault of Sasha Menu Courey, who committed suicide in 2011, about 16 months after the alleged rape.
   In a letter to chancellors of the university's four campuses, Wolfe says he'll ask the board of curators to hire "outside independent counsel" to investigate how the university handled Menu Courey's allegations.
   The university also says it turned its information on the matter over to police on Saturday.

An investigation underway in Franklin County after a St. Louis woman says she was raped by two armed men.

The woman told officers she was driving home to St. Louis from Cuba, when she became lost. When she pulled over to ask for directions, two men--one man armed with a knife, the other with a gun--approached her car. The men proceeded to sexually assault her.

The woman was treated for the assault at a hospital. Police have only a very vague description of the suspects. The woman was not able to tell authorities which direction the men drove off.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri teen who says she was raped by an older boy at her high school has written an account of her ordeal for an online woman's magazine.

In the article posted Friday on xojane.com, Daisy Coleman writes that the 2012 incident sent her into a spiral and she twice tried to commit suicide.

Mandy Stadtmiller, deputy editor for the website, says she asked Daisy to provide the first-person account after reading about her story.

Felony charges against two teens were dropped after the prosecutor in Maryville said the witnesses refused to cooperate.

On Wednesday, the prosecutor asked for a special prosecutor to re-examine the evidence.

MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Maryville city and school officials say they are on heightened alert in response to negative attention the city is receiving over a sexual abuse case.

City, school and police officials say they are concerned about reaction expressed on social media and in phone calls after the Nodaway County prosecutor decided to drop sexual assault charges against two 17-year-old boys who were accused of sexually assaulting two younger girls.

On Monday, the activist group Anonymous released an online statement criticizing the city and police for not prosecuting the case. However, the case was handled by Nodaway County, not the city.

The Maryville Daily Forum reports police are increasing patrols to protect anyone involved with the case and school officials met Monday at all three city schools to discuss security.

   St. Charles police believe the man accused of drugging and raping a 13 year old girl and taking nude cell phone pictures of her, probably had more victims.  

   Forty-seven year old Thomas Wilburn is charged with statutory sodomy, statutory rape and enticement of a child under age 14.  

   St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar says Wilburn lured the girl to his apartment in May through a singles' telephone chat service that's supposed to be for adults only.   Lohmar calls that disturbing.  "It is very concerning that somebody who's underage could find their way,  not only into the chat room, but to be able to participate in the chat room," Lohmar said.

   Lohmar says this girl probably wasn't the only victim Wilburn met through the chat service.  "We have reason to believe that there are other victims out there, for sure," he said.

   Police say Wilburn was identified through court ordered phone records.  

   Wilburn is a registered sex offender with statutory rape convictions in 2007.  He's currently jailed on $100,000 bond.

   Anyone with information about this case, or additional victims is urged to call the St. Charles Police Department at (636) 949-3300.

Jury: Ex-Ohio deputy, baby sitter guilty of rape

MARION, Ohio (AP) - A former Ohio sheriff's deputy and correction officer has been convicted of raping a 5-year-old girl while he was baby-sitting.

State Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Thursday a Marion County jury found 28-year-old Randy N. Spencer guilty of four counts of rape. His office says Spencer raped the girl between June 2012 and April.

Defense attorney Rocky Ratliff says Spencer denies the charges. He says Spencer is disappointed with the jury's decision and will appeal his conviction. He says prosecutors had no physical evidence against Spencer, whose girlfriend runs a baby-sitting business.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Spencer baby-sat the girl and other children when his girlfriend wasn't available.

The Marion resident faces a maximum sentence of life in prison. He's scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 27.

An East St. Louis man is back home after spending nearly four months in jail for a crime he did not commit.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that DNA evidence cleared 20-year-old Marlon Miller as a suspect in a brutal rape and robbery. The victim was walking home from a Metrolink stop in East St. Louis when someone pointed a gun at her and forced to a secluded area, then robbed and raped her.

Miller may still be headed to court, he alleges that former East St. Louis detective Orlando Ward coerced a confession to the robbery and helped charge him with sexual assault. Ward was arrested last month for allegedly being a part of a drug ring.
