PROVO, Utah — KSL TV has obtained a police report from the incident at BYU in which a Duke University volleyball player says someone in the student section repeatedly yelled racial slurs at her.
In that document, a BYU police officer said he reviewed video surveillance of the game and does not see evidence that the fan who was banned by BYU that night was the person making the derogatory comments.
Duke player Rachel Richardson said she first heard the slur when she prepared to serve during the second set.
The officer was stationed near the Duke bench during the fourth set and said he didn’t hear any slurs while there.
The next day, BYU officials apologized to Richardson and vowed to fight racism.
KSL TV will continue to follow this investigation.
