Even curiouser about Mirecki

Nation: More conflicting reports on how Mirecki injuries looked.

Mirecki hasn’t been around the office much, but this hasn’t stopped reporters from roaming Smith Hall searching for him and anyone else willing to talk, said Margaret Rausch, assistant professor of religious studies, whose office sits directly below Mirecki’s. ....Rausch said she last saw Mirecki at the religious studies department’s monthly faculty meeting on Monday and noticed “big swollen spots” on his face. “It transformed his face,” she said. Jesse Plous, New York senior, and Tiffany Jeffers, Shawnee senior, are enrolled in Mirecki’s Dead Sea Scrolls class. They said they didn’t notice bruises or scratches when they met for class at 12:30 p.m. Monday. Lindsay Mayer, Holbrook, Ariz., junior, another student in the class, said she might have seen a small bruise on the side of his face, but said injuries weren’t extremely noticeable. Mirecki didn’t show up for class on Wednesday. The students said Mirecki had never mentioned the controversy in class. “It’s a good class, it really is,” said Plous. “It’s too bad he’s been steeped in controversy. I hope it pans out for the guy.”
