WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Purdue University said Wednesday that the video that is the subject of a lawsuit between itself and the Purdue Exponent will be released to the public as long as the prosecutor signs off on it.

As News 18 has already reported, the Exponent is suing the University over access to surveillance video from the Electrical Engineering building on the day Andrew Boldt was murdered in the basement. The newspaper filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the video from the second floor showing the police interaction with its photographer Michael Takeda.

In a statement released Wednesday evening, after a court hearing earlier in the day, Purdue said it will publicly post the video as long as Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Pat Harrington allows it.

News 18 was unable to reach Harrington Wednesday night for comment.
