Similarities between two slain UNCW students

Christen Naujoks & Jessica Faulker: Two UNCW students violently murdered by stalkers Christen Naujoks & Jessica Faulker: Two UNCW students violently murdered by stalkers

Christen Naujoks is the second UNCW student to be stalked and brutally murdered in less than a month. And there are similarities between her case and the death of UNCW sophomore Jessica Faulkner.

The man accused of killing Faulkner, Curtis Dixon, apparently lied on his application for admission to the university. So did the man suspected of killing Naujoks, John Peck.

Also, like Faulkner, Naujoks wanted protection from a stalker. Naujoks told New Hanover County sheriff's deputies she tried to get help from university police but, "They said they couldn't do anything."

University officials refused on several occasions to make an on-camera comment. They only released a written statement saying this issue is being handled by the university's highest authorities, and a statement will be made as soon as possible.

But students are talking about how this second murder worries them.

"It kind of makes you think twice about how safe we really are," says student Allison Scott.

Most student we asked believe there should be changes in the university's admissions process, saying they think there should be more security and harsher background checks.

Late Monday afternoon, UNCW Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo released a second statement, saying the university is working to form a task force on campus violence. It will be responsible for ensuring the highest possible standards of safety.
