Police have arrested three teenage boys and a man who allegedly raped a Louisiana State University student and then dumped her on the side of the street where she was later fatally struck by a car, Fox News reported. 

Kaivon Deondre Washington, 18, Everett Lee, 28, Casen Carver, 18, and a 17-year-old who police have not identified because he is underage were arrested for the rape of 19-year-old Madison Brooks. 

According to investigators, Carver admitted that he and the other males met Brooks at Reggie’s Bar near the LSU campus. He said, the group drank alcohol together and Brooks left the bar with them and was

“very unstable on her feet, was not able to keep her balance, and was unable to speak clearly without slurring her words,”

an arrest document revealed, according to FOX 8.

Carver told investigators he had seen Brooks and the 17-year-old boy

“hugging and walking together,”

saying she asked for a ride home. Carver said he was the driver that night and Lee sat in the front passenger seat, while Washington and the 17-year-old were in the back with Brooks. He alleges that Washington and the 17-year-old asked Brooks

“five times”

to have sex with them and she

“gave verbal consent,”

according to the document. 

He said they later dropped Brooks off at a nearby subdivision, at around 3 a.m. where she was hit and killed by a rideshare driver on Burbank Drive near Pelican Lakes Parkway, reports state. Police say, the driver showed no signs of impairment. 

Investigators said Brooks had a blood-alcohol content of 0.319% — nearly four times the legal limit.

Kaivon Deondre Washington, 18, and a 17-year-old unidentified minor were charged with third-degree rape. Everett Lee, 28, and Casen Carver, 18, were charged with principal to third-degree rape, which means they were present but did not participate in the alleged crime.
