FCASV is saddened and outraged by the recent tragic report of a young woman who was drugged and raped while visiting Miami and who later died in her hotel room. While many vacationers come to Florida during spring break to have fun, there are others who use the event to do harm unto others. This is a heartbreaking and stark reminder that perpetrators will use drugs and alcohol to exploit victims and make them vulnerable by impairing their cognitive and physical functions. An individual under the influence of substances cannot give consent. We are devastated that this survivor had no chance for justice or healing. We are, once again, mourning with a woman’s family, loved ones, and community.
