OVERDOSE

Pepperdine President’s Son Questioned

Los Angeles detectives are hoping to question Christopher Benton, the son of Pepperdine University's president, in relation with the death of Katie Wilkins two weeks ago. The 25-year-old graphic designer reportedly died of a heroin overdose. Benton isn’t being considered a suspect, but there’s video footage of him and Wilkins together the night she died and detectives believe he was the last one to see her alive. Benton recently checked into rehab and has declined to be questioned. Wilkin’s family publicly pleaded for him to talk, and her brother told the press that his family “deserves answers from the kid who saw her last.”
