Man Mangum is accused of stabbing dies
By John McCann
DURHAM The man Crystal Mangum is accused of stabbing has died, Durham Police Department Chief Jose Lopez Sr. said Wednesday.
Mangum already was in jail under a $300,000 secured bond charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
“More than likely, we will be upgrading the charge to murder,” Lopez said.
In 2006, Mangum, 32, falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of raping her.
On April 3, officers were called to 3507 Century Oaks Drive. When they arrived, they found a 46-year-old man had been stabbed in the torso with a kitchen knife, according to police. He was taken to Duke University Hospital and treated for serious injuries.
In December, Mangum was in Durham County Superior Court for an arson trial. Jurors found her guilty of three counts of contributing to the abuse and neglect of minors, causing more than $200 in property damage to the car of the man who was Mangum’s boyfriend and resisting a police officer. Those were misdemeanor charges. But jurors did not reach consensus on the major issue, the arson charge — a felony — so Superior Court Judge Abraham Jones declared a mistrial. Mangum was sentenced to time already served, 88 days. The Durham County District Attorney’s Office decided not to pursue the case further.
Mangum threatened to stab the boyfriend in the arson case, police said.
From the link:
Mangum went into hiding, then graduated from NCCU in 2008 with a degree in police psychology. Later that year, she released a memoir”The Last Dance for Grace: The Crystal Mangum Story”
Then last year, Mangum was arrested and charged with attempted murder, arson and child abuse after a domestic dispute with a man she dated before Daye
In December, the jury found Mangum guilty of child abuse, but they couldn’t agree on a first-degree felony arson charge, which could have landed Mangum in jail for seven years
Good grief. This woman can’t stay out of trouble. I hope now that she will go away to jail for a llllooooonnnngggg time. They will not give her the death penalty. Nope, nada, no way. They will say she was troubled. The court should have put her in prison earlier for lying about the Duke Lacrosse players so she couldn’t have stabbed this guy. Now, this guy, her boyfriend now is dead.
She’s a freak; and if she was stabbing dude for money, I’m thinking drugs.
Duke lacrosse accuser’s boyfriend dies after stabbing
Posted: 20 minutes ago
Durham, N.C. Family members of a man who was stabbed in his home April 3 say he died Wednesday evening. Crystal Mangum, the Durham woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape in 2006 has been charged with assaulting him.
Durham police could not be reached for comment on whether her charges would be upgraded.
Mangum, 32, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and was being held in the Durham County jail on a $300,000 bond.
Police said Mangum stabbed Reginald Daye, 46, in the torso with a kitchen knife during a dispute at 3507 Century Oaks Drive early on April 3.
Daye was taken to Duke University Hospital, and Mangum was arrested in a nearby apartment.
A man who said he was Daye’s nephew called 911 to report the stabbing, saying it occurred while Daye and his girlfriend were arguing about rent money. The caller said police came to the apartment complex earlier while the couple argued, but the stabbing occurred after the officers left.
When asked for a description of the girlfriend, the caller said, “It’s Crystal Mangum. THE Crystal Mangum.”
This jives with what my momma always used to tell me. She'd say, "Son, you just shouldn't date any girl who tried to murder her last boyfriend."
“C-c-c-can’t we all just get along?”
She’s a real POS from the sewers.
Will the Group of 88 go with Mr. Daye’s family to Crystal’s jailhouse and bang some pots and pans to demand justice? Will Wahneema Lubiano write an outraged statement for Mr. Daye to demand justice?
Will pigs fly?
LOL. But seriously, it is kind of difficult to have much sympathy for the guy she stabbed.
A wise woman, your mama.
Mangum is a train wreck.
If they had sent her to jail, Daye would still be alive.
Just damn. I went to bed too early last night!
How many lives did this piece of cr** ruin.
I’m thinking just plain evil...........................
Thanks for the ping. Can’t say I’m surprised. She was a piece of trash five years ago and she’s a piece of trash now. I will never forget what she (and the media and all the liberal garbage) put those boys through five years ago.
I was listening to 680 AM and I swear I heard Roy Cooper saying that he hopes she gets treatment. I was only half listening before I knew the subject. Is he that pathetic?
You mean you heard that today?
Roy Cooper was hoping she would get treatment four years ago; he called her disturbed and refused to press charges against her.
Something else pathetic? The News Observer has disabled its comment board “numerous violations” of its policy. No one gave a d@mn about violations five years ago when the “rape” story first broke.
And who can forget that softball interview the News Observer published of Crystal, the soft spoken college student who was just trying to support her kids? Oh, gag me! I still get angry over this story.
Yes! But, I bet the recording was from back then, now that you mention it. That makes sense. Thanks!
Sorry, no. I’m picky about the fiction I read.
