A police officer in whom a university student confided that she feared for her life after a breakup shared nude photographs that she had given him with officers not involved in the matter just weeks before she was murdered , her parents contend in a new lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed on Monday in state court in Salt Lake County by the parents of Lauren McCluskey against the University of Utah , where McCluskey was a final-year student when she was killed in October by a man she had dated for just a few weeks. He later took his own life. Their daughter had sounded the alarm about being stalked, threatened and blackmailed by Rowland, whom McCluskey had broken up with when she learned that he had lied about his name and was a convicted sex offender on parole, the lawsuit said.

The alleged breach of privacy was first reported last month by The Salt Lake Tribune , which said that the Police Department in Logan, Utah, where Mr Deras is now employed, had begun an internal affairs investigation into the matter.
