CLAREMONT, Va. - Many people in this rural town of just 300 know the story of Tawana Brawley, but most have no idea her family lives among them.
Brawley - whose claims of being raped by a "white cop" shocked the city 20 years ago - has long since turned her back on New York. She changed her name, converted to Islam, moved south and got a bullmastiff "trained to bite" in case someone unwanted comes to visit.
The Daily News tracked her family to Claremont, Va., once one large plantation, now a tiny town of cotton and soybean farms, with a two-room library and post office, but no police department or local newspaper.
In a wide-ranging two-hour interview, Glenda Brawley and Ralph King, Brawley's mother and stepfather, revealed glimpses into her life.
She attended Howard University in Washington, where she could not have a roommate for security reasons.
Like her mother, she works as a nurse. Co-workers at the nursing home that employs her know her by the name listed on her nursing license, Tawana Thompson.

Still sleeps in a pig pen covered in her own feces does she???? I would have given her 20-life for that stunt! She ruined Steven Pagano’s life. What a pig!
I'll bet Al was doin' her.
Was she ever prosecuted for her false police reports? I know Crystal Mangum was never prosecuted (thanks to the AG of North Carolina) but don’t remember if Tawana was.
If she has a criminal history can she still get licensed as an RN? Maybe she is a nurses aide or an LPN.
Good questions. I don’t know. I spent some time searching for more information, but couldn’t locate the answers.
Believe it or not, there’s not a guaranteed payoff in making a public douchesse of yourself, despite what you read in Star Magazine.
So we know how Tawana came to be low-life scum, and that her parents are still that way. I don’t think she ever seriously apologized to those she helped put through the wringer, so we’ll leave her in that category as well.
