Scott County Enforcing Paraphernalia Laws in Spite of HIV Outbreak

Play

Police in Scott County say they will continue enforcing drug paraphernalia laws, despite concerns from public health officials trying to stem the HIV outbreak there.

The HIV outbreak in southeastern Indiana continues to grow. So far there have been 143 new cases discovered as part of the outbreak. State health officials joined local authorities in Scott County this morning to discuss the situation. The outbreak has been linked to the use of intravenous drugs and Governor Mike Pence has suspended state law to allow for a needle exchange program there. But some say local police aren’t responding well to the legalization of drug paraphernalia. WFHB News Director Joe Crawford has that story for today’s WFHB community report.

Indiana University Offering Free Counseling Services to Students

Indiana University is offering free counseling services to students following the murder of IU senior Hannah Wilson on Friday. IU Counseling and Psychological Services Director Nancy Stockton says counselors have already visited the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, where Wilson was a member. Any students who seek services for grief, anxiety or other issues related to Wilson’s death will not be charged a fee.

Wilson’s body was found in a vacant lot in Brown County on Friday. Police arrested Bloomington resident Daniel Messel on Friday and formally charged him with murder this morning. Stockton says some students may still be in shock after hearing the news.

Stockton further explained, “People are distraught. They frequently go through a period of being in shock, of feeling disbelief, of almost denial that anything so horrific has happened. Slowly psychologically things sink in… Sometimes it takes a little while for things to really sink in and for the student to be ready to talk to someone about it. So sometimes they don’t actually seek out counselling for a few days or sometimes even weeks.”

Stockton encouraged students to keep an eye out for friends who might be in distress. She says these kinds of events can affect more than just those who were close to the victim.

Stockton said, “Others can be indirectly affected… Even though they may not have know Hannah, this can have a considerable impact on them.”

According to a probable cause statement filed by State Police, Wilson’s friends last saw her about 1 a.m. Friday morning when she got into a taxi outside Kilroy’s Sports Bar. Wilson had been drinking and her friends decided she was too intoxicated to enter the bar. When police found her body, they found Messel’s cell phone nearby, according to the statement. Later they found Messel, who they say had claw marks on his forearms and blood splattered on the driver’s side of his car.

Messel is currently being held without bond in the Brown County Jail. Students looking for counseling or other help after normal business hours can call the Counseling and Psychological Services crisis line at 812-855-5711.
