According to the Daily Mail, five Texas college students are facing criminal charges over the 2019 death of a Texas Christian University freshman named Jack Elliott. The report says one of the students allegedly pushed Elliot off a boat while they were flirting.
A witness claims she saw Jack Elliot fall from the bow of a 22-foot boat after Delaney Brennan, 21, pushed him while flirting out on the waters of Lake Travis, a manmade lake, northwest of Austin, in October 2019.
Delaney and Jack, 19, had been ‘kissing’ when she gave him a ‘playful shove’ that left him overboard before hitting a propeller and drowning in the water at around 8.30pm.
The true circumstances were only revealed in a wrongful death lawsuit launched by Elliot’s grieving family in 2020.
Elle Weber, another teen on the boat, detailed in a sworn statement in the suit: ‘Delaney and Jack were at the front of the boat, flirting and kissing.
‘She gave Jack a “playful little shove” and he fell off the boat.’
In an affidavit, another teen said panicked Delaney kept repeating: ‘He fell! I didn’t mean to push him’ after the ordeal.
Fashion student Delaney, now 21, also revealed in the she got a tattoo of Jack’s initials on her wrist after the tragedy so that she can remember how much ‘he loved life.’
However, she is now one of five students facing criminal charges after the justice system weighed in and concluded they have a case to answer for – mainly concerning the alleged story cover-up.
Delaney Brennan was indicted on a felony charge of tampering with evidence by aiding in the deletion of a cellphone video. She could face up to 10 years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
She will appear for a pre-trial at the Travis County Criminal Court on August 17.
They almost got away it. I am sure this will be a Netflix documentary or movie very soon.
