At a press conference this afternoon, Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo announced that his department has suspended—but not closed—an investigation into an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia, infamously detailed in a Rolling Stone article published last year. Longo said that the investigation uncovered "no evidence" to support claims made by a UVA student identified as "Jackie" in the article.
