Vigil held for slain Utah student-athlete

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Hundreds of University of Utah students lined up to leave flowers and candles under a picture of slain student-athlete Lauren McCluskey.

The 21-year-old McCluskey was a member of the school’s track team, and many of her teammates wiped away tears during Wednesday evening’s vigil on the steps of the Park Building on campus.

School officials announced that a winged foot logo has been created to honor her memory.

The Utes football team will wear the logo as a helmet decal in Friday night’s game at UCLA, and the soccer team will wear wristbands with a heart logo that includes McCluskey’s initials in Thursday night’s home game versus UCLA.

Utah’s cross country team will wear black uniforms and a patch of the heart logo at Friday’s Pac-12 Cross Country Championships at Stanford.

Authorities say McCluskey was fatally shot Monday night on campus by a man she briefly dated.
