Stanford’s disciplinary actions pending

In a March 4th interview with Today, Steve and Gina Meyer confirmed that she “died by suicide.” And say they believe Katie was “triggered” by a recent email she had received from the school. 

 According to Steve, Kate was facing Stanford’s disciplinary actions. The student-athlete had been “defending a teammate on campus over an incident.” 

The Meyer’s had not seen the email that Katie mentioned in their last talk with her. But they claim Katie was receiving letters about the potential disciplinary action for the last few months.

And Gina added that “This letter was kind of the final letter that there was going to be a trial or some kind of something. This is the only thing that we can come up with that triggered something.”
