The news of junior nursing major Amanda Bebout's death brought a mixture of emotions ranging from shock to sadness to concerns about a possible homicide. For the university, it seems that the need to warn the campus came into conflict with the risk of disseminating information that had not been made official at the time. The decision to go public with an inaccurate statement could have resulted in panic.
