Four Ex-Vanderbilt Football Players Accused of Rape

Four former Vanderbilt football players have been accused in the rape of an unconscious student in a dormitory room in June in a case that detectives described as “unsettling.” Brandon Vandenburg, 20, and JaBorian McKenzie, 19, turned themselves in on Friday, while Cory Batey, 19, was arrested the same day. The fourth suspect, Brandon Banks, 19, remains at large. All four were dismissed from the football team long before case went to a grand jury and charges were filed, but they were still players at the time of the incident. Police said the case came to light only after university officials saw something suspicious while going over surveillance footage for a different matter.
