BATON ROGUE, LOUISIANA: Madison Brooks, 19, a sophomore at the high school, was killed after being struck by a car on January 15. Brooks, who was better known to her close circle of friends as Madi, died in a hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Monday, January 23. 

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office made the announcement that Kaivon Washington, 18, had been charged with third-degree rape on Monday night. Washington was accused alongside a 17-year-old, whose name is being suppressed by officials due to the fact that he is a juvenile. Casen Carver, age 18, and Everett Lee, age 28, were both apprehended and charged with being accomplices to a rape in the third-degree following Brooks' death.

According to the Daily Mail, documents related to the arrest suggest that Brooks had a blood alcohol level of 0.319%  at the time of her death. This indicates that she was extremely inebriated since her blood alcohol level was nearly four times the legal limit. Washington, one of the suspects in the rape of Brooks, said in court documents obtained that he and Brooks had a mutually consenting sexual encounter after a night of drinking at Reggie's Bar in Tigerland, Baton Rouge. 

After the revelation of Brooks' blood alcohol level and the incident that took place with her, the Internet had something to say and a Twitter user wrote, "no matter how much alcohol madison brooks consumed she shouldn’t have had her life ended that way . y’all like to victim blame, it’s not her fault whatsoever." Another user wrote "#MadisonBrooks deserves #justice. Drinking does not mean she deserved it. Drinking does not give men a free pass to use women’s bodies. To then dump her on the side of the road, where she was killed? I hope these 4 men are held accountable to the full extent of the law."



Another user questioned on how was she served with alchol at such a young age and wrote, "the bar selling drinks to underrated kids needs to be held responsible too" another user wrote "This case is both disgusting and tragic. I am anxious to hear the facts presented in great detail. Horrible!"
