Duke lacrosse accuser charged with murderMIKE BAKERFrom Associated PressApril 19, 2011 7:32 AM EDT
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A murder charge against the woman who falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of raping her is but the latest problem for a woman friends say is still haunted by the stigma of the lacrosse case.
Thirty-two-year-old Crystal Mangum was indicted Monday on a charge of first-degree murder and two counts of larceny. She has been in jail since April 3, when police charged her with assault in the stabbing of her boyfriend 46-year-old Reginald Daye. He died after nearly two weeks at a hospital.
Friends say Mangum has never recovered from the stigma brought by the lacrosse case and has been involved in a string of questionable relationships in an attempt to provide stability for her children.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot ???
Despite the AP's spin on this story to engender sympathy for Mangum, I don't feel sorry for her at all. Maybe, with a little luck, her kids will have a minute chance at a normal life.
So, there we have it:
