Student Admits to Contaminating Roomie’s Belongings With Mold and Dirty Tampons

When I saw this story trending online I didn’t want to pitch it to my editor or write it because I could barely get through reading it. To say the details in this story are disgusting is an understatement. I just watched a segment about it on TV this morning and the anchors said they had to sanitize the story and omit some of the details because they are too graphic for morning television.

If you’ve seen “#JusticeForJazzy” trending on social media it’s in relation to the story of Chennel Rowe, a University of Hartford freshman who goes by the nickname Jazzy. On Monday she shared a Facebook Live video that was nearly two hours long, in which she told the story of her former roommate Brianna Rae Brochu. The two students lived together from late August until Oct. 17.

They didn’t get along and in a police report that was filed later, Rowe said that she felt “ostracized” by her 18-year-old roomie, claiming that she treated her as a “ghost.” But it was as she was moving her belongings out of the room that one of their neighbors approached Rowe to say, “she had seen some very concerning posts made by Brochu on Instagram.”
