  1. Rumors of private investigator on campus are false, DePauw Police identify as man experiencing homeless

After an Instagram story was posted by a student on Thursday, March 4, rumors have been circulating on campus that there is a private investigator that has been parked between Alpha Tau Omega and Delta Tau Delta since January. 

Charlene Shrewsbury, chief of DePauw Police, addressed these rumors today by saying that DePauw has never hired a private investigator. Shrewsbury says that DePauw Police have interacted with the man pictured in the vehicle before, and that he is experiencing homelessness and lives in his car. 

“He said he feels safest nearby campus because there are people in law enforcement that pass by on a continual basis,” Shrewsbury said. “He does not feel safe staying in a park.”
