OR - 16 years after OSU football gang rape allegation, victim speaks
16 years after Oregon State football gang-rape allegation, Brenda Tracy steps from the shadows (oregonlive.com)
Her name is Brenda Tracy. We met downtown over coffee on a weekday morning a couple months ago. And I was struck that nobody in the passing parade of briefcases, lattes and workday stares appeared to notice the 40-year-old as she adjusted her ponytail, wiped the tears and unloaded a story that she's carried like a bag of bricks for years.
"I'd decided I was going to kill myself," she said.

Wow, shaking my head at some of the moronic comments below the first oregonlive article. Sad that some just don't get it. What an amazing woman she is and all that she has accomplished is so inspiring. She deserves to hold her head high.
