Two More Suspects Come Forward In WSU Assault

By Anna King

Two more suspects in the assault of a professor at Washington State University in Pullman came forward to police Friday. The two suspects have been released on the condition they don’t talk with other participants, go to bars or consume alcohol. Whitman County’s prosecutor is expected to file charges soon. Two suspects are WSU students.
American studies professor David Warner is in serious, but stable, condition at a Spokane hospital following the March 30 assault.
Shawn Lamebull works in the office next door to Warner’s, and also sits in a Native American drum group with the professor. Lamebull says during Warner’s recovery, he’ll miss …

Shawn Lamebull: “ … his voice, whether it be on social media where he’s commenting on something, or at the drum where he’s there to really weld us together.”

So far several social media groups have sprung up, and about 18-thousand-dollars has been raised for Warner.
