Still unanswered:

@hy Utah didn't immediately suspend Winslow as soon as they learned of the investigation by Arizona authorities in December?

Why didn't Utah's Dept of Public Safety immediately contact Utah's Athletic Dept?

As far as we have been told, Utah doesn't know anything more about the investigation now, than they knew in December.


UoU 1991, those questions were answered in the other article. Hill suspended Winslow within a day of learning of the allegations. Utah's Dept of Public Safety was ordered not to disseminate the information by the police investigating the allegations until they ordered it.

Why would the Arizona authorities not want Utah's Athletic Dept to know about a possible child molester operating within their department?

Who would be held responsible if it was discovered that Winslow tried to molest a child on Utah's campus sometime between December 2012 and when he was suspended?

Regardless of what the Arizona authorities requested, it seems that Utah's Dept of Public Safety was putting the university at extreme risk by not immediately notifying the department that employed Winslow.


Whatsnu, if I was an Arizona police investigator I'd answer that question, but I'm not. My best guess is that they felt if Winslow knew he was being investigated, he could contact others involved in the investigation and compromise the work the police were doing.

Freaky....just plain freaky. Sometimes I wonder if people have the best interest in mind for the children of the world. Stop being politically correct and protect the kids.

There is about to be a lot more coming out on this story and none of it reflects well on chris hill or the university of utah. utah "fans" prepare yourselves to go into full on spin mode.
