SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Students at South Dakota’s public universities walk across the graduation stage this weekend, and that means the 2022-2023 academic year has come to a close.
University of South Dakota President Sheila Gestring gave us a year in review and a preview of what students and parents can expect for next year.
And it’s been 34 years since Dawn Aspaas, then Gaspar, was raped while her daughter was held at knifepoint. This 1989 case sent two men to prison; one man is still behind bars and the other is listed as a parole absconder.
We take a look back at this emotional story and hear from Dawn’s daughter Liza for the first time since their traumatic experience.
