Eric Montgomery, an Indiana man, was accused of ra**ping an Indiana University sorority member before she mysteriously died at her parents’ home earlier this month.

Eric Montgomery Age
Eric Montgomery is 33 years old.
Two weeks after 20-year-old Indiana University student Avery McMillan was found unresponsive inside a Bloomington home, police arrested the homeowner in connection with her death on Wednesday.
Eric Montgomery, 33, now faces one count of ra**pe when the victim is mentally handicapped or defective, as well as one count of giving alcohol to a minor, according to arrest records. It is the only arrest stemming from McMillan’s mysterious death on August 17.
No additional details about what happened between McMillan and Montgomery were released Wednesday. Police said earlier this month that Montgomery called 911 and said McMillan was unresponsive at his home. First responders arrived and gave McMillan three doses of Narcan, an opioid overdose treatment, to no avail. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Cops said Montgomery was cooperative with police at the time, telling detectives he met McMillan the night before, picked her up near campus and took her to his nearby home. Authorities did not say what else happened in the time between McMillan being picked up and his death the next morning.
While Narcan use suggests McMillan’s death may have been related to an overdose, police are still awaiting test results from a medical examiner who will definitively identify her cause of death. Officials said the results could take up to a month to come back.
Montgomery, who authorities say has an “extensive and violent criminal history,” was arrested without incident at a traffic stop Wednesday. A special division, called the Critical Incident Response Team, assisted in the arrest due to his criminal history, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said.
Court records show a judge approved a warrant for Montgomery’s arrest Tuesday and set his bail at $100,000.
Montgomery has a string of arrests in Indiana, most recently for marijuana possession on Aug. 4.
Among the felony arrests on Montgomery’s record are charges of endangering a person while driving drunk in 2019, domestic battery in 2018, credit card fraud and theft in 2012, and trafficking in counterfeit substances in 2011, as the records show.
Since then, friends and family have taken to social media to remember McMillan, saying that she was “so generous” and that she “was always there to help everyone,” according to a GoFundMe created by her friend Gabrielle Parsons.
The 20-year-old was a senior at Indiana University and part of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, she wrote the chapter in a Facebook post, praising her ability to build relationships.
“Avery, you were a beautiful free spirit who lit up our lives,” Madi Gen wrote on an online memorial page. “You were so generous with your love and brought joy and comfort to many people. You were so full of life and still had so much to offer the world.”
