Two arrests in beating of WSU professor

Two suspects in last month’s brutal attack on a WSU instructor have been arrested, The Spokesman-Review reports. An anonymous tip from Western Washington led Pullman authorities to 21-year-old Madeline A. Fouts, a Washington State University student living in Pullman. Investigators questioned Fouts this morning and arrested her around 12:30 p.m. for rendering criminal assistance and making false statements. She was later released and is cooperating with investigators, authorities said. Joshua W. Nantz, 23, also a WSU student, was arrested this evening, according to a news release from Pullman police. He was asked to come to the police department and was arrested there on suspicion of first-degree assault. Police are still following leads to capture two other men suspected in the attack.
