|UNCW Statement on the Death of Christen Naujoks|
|Wilmington, N.C.—University of North Carolina at Wilmington Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo and the entire university family is profoundly saddened by the horrific death of Christen Naujoks. |
Naujoks was a transfer student who had taken classes this past academic year, but was not scheduled to return. She was a junior, pre-education major. The alleged suspect in her death, John Peck, was a former student at the university. After it was recently discovered that he had lied on his application, the university took immediate action to suspend him effective May 27. He was a junior pre-communication studies major.
After a recent visit by Naujoks to the University Police, the police assisted her in obtaining a protective order, commonly known as a restraining order, against Peck.
Chancellor DePaolo said, “The death of Jessica Faulkner prompted us to review procedures and processes to protect our students. This recent tragedy further compels our commitment and resolve to explore what additional measures, if any, the university can take to ensure the safety of our university community. We express our deepest sympathy to the Naujoks family and friends.”
