Prince Shembo reveals he was accused of sexual battery by Lizzy Seeberg

Prince ShemboThree and a half years after Lizzy Seeberg committed suicide after her sexual battery allegations were slowly investigated by Notre Dame, the identity of the football player accused of committing sexual battery against her has been revealed.

Prince Shembo, who has been a starting linebacker for Notre Dame since his sophomore season and is now an NFL draft prospect, admitted Saturday that he was the player at the center of the Seeberg case. Shembo says he’s been asked about it by teams who have interviewed him.

“I just tell [NFL team executives] the truth, I have nothing to hide,” Shembo said via Notre Dame 247. “No one’s heard from me one time. Do you go off of one person’s story?

“I’m still here, so I know I didn’t do anything. I tell them exactly what happened.”

Shembo says he wanted to speak about the incident while in college to clear his name, but he was advised by Coach Brian Kelly not to. He trusted his coach’s advice and followed it.

The alleged incident occurred inside Shembo’s dorm room on Aug. 31, 2010. Seeberg, then 19 and a student at neighboring school St. Mary’s, was in Shembo’s room along with a friend of Shembo’s (who did not play football) and that person’s girlfriend. When the couple left, she says Shembo came on to her and that’s when the sexual battery occurred.

Seeberg went to the hospital for a DNA evidence kit, consulted with a campus group that helps victims of sex crimes, and she reported the incident to campus police. She committed suicide by overdosing on pills 10 days later. It wasn’t until 15 days after she reported the crime that Shembo was even investigated.

Shembo may not have done anything wrong as he claims, but one thing seems to be consistent: Notre Dame did not handle the investigation properly.

    One thing is clear, Larry. Just because some guy (you) has experience in sports does not bestow upon him (you) wisdom–in your case, your opinion of this very serious and sensitive situation is nothing but gratuitous assumption.

    “Knockout gang” thugs commit Black on White crime endlessly while “Knockout gang” accessories in suit and tie keep it quiet or egg the thugs on.
    They say they are anti-racist but what they are is anti-White.
    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

  • Lt_Greyman_NVA

    Where are the Feminists? I thought that allegations of rape were to be taken seriously? What did the DNA evidence show? If he is guilty, why is he even IN college? I’m confused, people can be expelled for merely “harassing” someone by asking them out but if you rape them and leave your semen as evidence you can continue to play football? Is this an example of “in Loco Parentius” of this school, because if I was her Dad, I’d take a FLAMETHROWER to that place.

    Prince Sambo needs to take his royal ass back to Africa where rape is the norm. You can’t have a first world nation (or college) with a third world population.

    “I didn’ do nuffin.”
    The first words a black learns in his wretched life.

  • Diversity Fatigue

    What we she doing in an African’s room? So the other couple left (almost assuredly a negro and a white whore) and she stayed behind?

    Again, where do I send the flowers?

    Coach Brian Kelly should go to prison.
