U.Virginia Athlete Accused of Killing Classmate
WJLA ^ | May 3, 2010

Posted on 05/03/2010 12:05:24 PM PDT by RDTF

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A University of Virginia men's lacrosse player was charged Monday with first-degree murder in the death of a women's lacrosse player. George Huguely, 22, of Chevy Chase, Md., was charged in the death of Yeardley Love, 22, of Cockeysville, Md., Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said. Both were seniors.

Longo said Love's roommate called police around 2:15 a.m. concerned that Love may have had an alcohol overdose, but police found her dead with obvious physical injuries to her body.

"It was quickly apparent to them that this young lady was the victim of something far worse," Longo said.

This should underscore that quality education doesn't necessarily translate to quality values and morality. The kid is a graduate of Landon, a Chevy Chase non-sectarian prep-school that costs in the neighborhood of $30K/year.

His haircut, or lack thereof, speaks volumes. And, yes, I am an old fogey.

I feel so sorry for the young woman’s parents and family. May God comfort them.

He evidently wanted to make sure he got in the last word. May God comfort this poor young woman’s family.

Here’s an article written in 2006 with George Huguely’s comments on the Duke case

If the Duke case taught us anything, it’s to wait until all the facts are in. I have no idea if the ex-boyfriend is guilty or not (he may well be guilty); and the fact that his attorney hasn’t been out there screaming that he’s not guilty, doesn’t bode well for the possibility of his innocence.

But stranger things have happened (remember the Duke case).

Time enough to draw moral conclusions later after all the facts are known.

Also, being rich, or from an exclusive school, doesn’t mean a thing with regards to having a propensity to murder someone.

A lot of poor uneducated people murder each other too (in fact, I think, in greater numbers...)

From the linked article, this quote by the suspect’s father:

Although Bordley said he constantly cautions the team about the dangers of alcohol in the wake of the incident — the Duke players have admitted underage drinking occurred at the party — such warnings have taken on new relevance. Huguely’s father, George, Sr. said yesterday that he’s had discussions with his son, who will play at University of Virginia next season, about staying out of situations that could be costly.

“Regardless of what winds up happening, you have to learn from this experience and take what you can from it,” George Huguely Sr. said. “You always have to remember and can’t let yourself be in a situation where something like this could happen.”

Talk about irony. If only he’d listened to his dad.

Graduation can be a stressful time. Lots of long-term couples break up around graduation, which can lead to conflict.

Not saying that is what happened here, but it is not that unusual.

My 9 year old has long hair, think David Cassidy only shaggier. My dad (who is an old fogey) is constantly on my case about his hair - but he is a straight A student and good kid. He’s never killed anyone either.

Things are a little different these days. People have less qualms about beating someone and its hard to know where the line sits.

A friend of mine got put into a coma just for talking to a girl when her ex-boyfriend went ballistic.

UVA and death seem to be in the news much more than any other college.

Not implying anything. Just sorta strange.

Biased remark. We paid that much inequivalent dollars twenty years ago and none of my kids, their classmates, their friends have murdered anyone. Most have gone on to good families and lives.

The bias against the wealthy is nothing more than envy.

Good grief, that is ridiculous. You are going to indict kids who attend private schools because of one incident? No murderers in public schools i guess? and yes, my kids attend private schools in the DC area. There are good and bad eggs in every population, attributing it to where he went to school is playing to classwarfare sentiments.

you are confusing UVA with VA tech. VAtech had the mass killing on campus by the nut several years ago, then another asian grad student sawed off his girlfriend’s head in the Au Bon Pain during the dinner hour. i know lots of families with kids at VaTech and it is eerie how prevalent violent deaths have been.

Hair length and color doesn't mean anything these days.

I retired from the Marine Corps and still live around Lejeune.

My kids are twins (boy and girl). My son's hair length depends entirely upon what his current girlfriend likes (from a Marine Corps regulation to touching his ears). My daughter's hair has purple coloring in it. She goes to church and three bible studies per week. Oh yes, they are both in the top 5% of their high school class and are very active in sports. Both kids are pretty conservative.

Me too, I think having three daughters makes me aware of how close girls can come to danger without even being aware.

I remember clearly the day that it hit me that just by walking thru life, one can brush up against terrible people and not even know it. Especially beautiful girls. I wondered if mine had come close to disaster and not known it.

Her Dad died when she was fifteen so her Mother is alone in this.

When I was in college, everyone’s hair was at least shoulder length. :)

My 19 year old son and his friends all have the “messy, tossled, they think they’re so hot hair”. It isn’t long, it just always looks like it needs a cut.

I imagine with boys, not having any, that accidents, fast driving, derring do would be on my mind. With girls, it is brushing up against bad people. Funny, I never worried they would go bad, I knew they wouldn’t and didn’t. But they were so innocent and protected when young that sometimes I worried they weren’t aware of the evil just around the corner.

This is scary. My daughter is a junior in high school. We just visited the College of William and Mary and UVA was also on her list of colleges to consider. My husband doesn’t want her to attend Tech because of their troubles and now he will probably scratch UVA from the list too.

Defense attorney calls death of Md. athlete ‘an accident’
Bail review hearing for lacrosse player charged with murder in Va. case postponed

By Don Markus, The Baltimore Sun
11:17 a.m. EDT, May 4, 2010

Charlottesville, Va.

An attorney for the 22-year-old man charged with killing a University of Virginia varsity women’s lacrosse player from Cockeysville claimed Tuesday that the death of Yeardley Love was “an accident with a tragic outcome.”

In the first court proceeding since the alleged murder, George Huguely was shown sitting in a room in Charlottesville-Albemarle Regional Jail on a closed-circuit television screen in a courtroom packed with more than two dozen reporters. Dressed in striped prison jumpsuit, Huguely appeared nervous, his hands resting tensely on his knees, awaiting word from District Court Judge Robert Downer and his lawyer Francis Lawrence, a Charlottesville defense attorney.
