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:

Two down:

Mike Nifong; Chrystal Mangum

One to go:

Richard Brodhead


  1. "...is still haunted by the stigma of the lacrosse case." Yes, poor Mike Nifong, too, is "suffering" under a similar "stigma." Why is it that people are so unkind to malicious liars and false accusers?

  2. Ran: Really, I'd never thought of it that way. What a cruel bastard I am. After all, scumbags are people too... (snark off)

    At least Oliver Jovanovic's false accuser Jamie Rzucek had the decency to refuse to testify in a failed attempt at a second prosecution following the reversal of his conviction by New York State's Appellate Division, First Department.

    Odd how Linda Fairstein "retired" so very shortly thereafter.
