producers, cast, MTV didn’t report “rape suspicions to police;” search was denied.
After The Real World San Diego house was the site of a possible sexual assault, a lawyer “declined a police request for consent to search a bedroom in the house and stated that MTV would not turn over documents or film before she personally reviewed them,” The Smoking Gun reports. Additionally, “it does not appear that MTV staff, cast members, or the show’s producers, Bunim-Murray, reported their rape suspicions to police. … [A]fter the incident, the entire production traveled to Mexico to film there,” TSG says. The site reproduces the transcript of a 1:35 a.m. telephone request for a search warrant, which includes a graphic account of the assault’s aftermath, including genital “lacerations” on the victim.
