A high school senior told police she was raped by "multiple guys" at a post-prom party.

The girl, 18, said it happened around 2 a.m. May 11 at a cabin on Edgewater Drive in Ellijay. She reported the rape from the hospital later that day.

According to Gilmer County investigators, more than two dozen students, mostly from Calhoun High School in Gordon County, were at the party. They were unsupervised, and they had a lot of alcohol.

Investigators have not released names, but confirmed three suspects are seniors at Calhoun High and a fourth attends Southeast Whitfield High in Dalton.

Friends described the boys as popular athletes.

"They're friends with everyone, and they're big. The guys are big, up in the community," said Reagan Redd.

Some people in Calhoun questioned why there had not been any arrests.

"I've heard who the kids are, and I've heard their parents are well-to-do in Calhoun," said Cheryl Matlock.

Gilmer County investigators said they were waiting on forensics results from the GBI crime lab before making any arrests.

The Calhoun City School System decided this week the three suspects would not be allowed to walk at Friday night's graduation.
