It wasn’t until the NFL Draft interview process that former Notre Dame linebacker Prince Shembo was publicly outed as the alleged perpetrator in the Lizzy Seeberg sexual assault case. As Shembo was never charged with any crime in connection to Seeberg’s alleged sexual assault and subsequent suicide, it was illegal to name him as a suspect in the case.
Outing Prince Shembo at that time would be the very definition of libel, even though every single person with a vested interest or connection to Notre Dame football knew that Shembo was the supposed player in question.
It was the worst kept secret in college football. Just ask Google. Go research Prince Shembo auto completes in search engines and see what happens.Follow paulmbanks
