Mangum's ex-boyfriend says he set clothes on fire (DukeLax update)
Raleigh News and Observer ^ | September 27, 2010 | Jesse James Deconto

Posted on 09/27/2010 11:32:53 AM PDT by abb

Crystal Mangum's ex boyfriend went to the Durham County district attorney's office Monday, trying to take responsibility for a February incident that left Mangum charged with arson for allegedly setting a pile of clothes on fire.

Milton Walker, the ex-boyfriend, says he set his own clothes on fire and damaged his own house and vehicle.

"At that time I wasn't on my medication," Walker wrote in a notarized handwritten note. 'The breakup of my relationship aggravated my symptoms and I acted out on the voices I was hearing." Quantcast

Mangum is charged with arson, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, injury to personal property and resisting an officer. Police say she set Walker's clothes on fire in a bathtub while her children, ages 3, 9 and 11, were present and police officers were in the home responding to a domestic violence call. In 2006 Mangum's accusations of rape caused Duke University lacrosse players to be charged; months later, the charges were dropped.

Birds of a feather flock together. I don’t believe Walker’s account of “hearing voices” for one minute. I can’t speak to motivation (maybe he’s worried she’ll reveal something about him at trial that he’d rather not be made public?), but the story doesn’t ring true. Weren’t the cops in the house when the fire was set? Hard to believe there’s serious question over who started it.

I wonder how it feels to be wrongly accused? Seems like a valuable lesson about “karma”.

Hearing voices and setting clothes on fire isn’t the strange part here.

Actually going out with a drunk lying whore who takes her clothes off for money is what’s weird.

Omigod! Whew! I thought this was about Tom Selleck (Magnum/ex-boyfriend). Glad to read “Magnum’s” first name is Chrystal.

It’s Mangum, not Magnum.

And yes, it fooled me at first too.

Thanks for the ping.

How does Crystal always manage to work these deals and who is paying this guy?

After they rescued the clothes, please tell me they removed those poor children?

No problem, Milton. It’s the sort of thing that happens all the time.

I'll have to remember that line for some future scrape.

I’ve not heard that alleged. The dispute was over her “cheating” on him. http://www.newsobserver.com/2010/06/30/559021/duke-lacrosse-accuser-holds-press.html

So he sounds like a “legitimate” ex-boyfriend rather than pimp. But, of course, a pimp might also be concerned about his girls’ cheating him out of money due etc.

* Steven Matherly (Ward 3) acquitted on disorderly conduct and trespassing charges from his actions at a Durham school board meeting. But he did not mention five charges for writing worthless checks between 1990 and 1995, or a 1993 charge for driving with a revoked license. Records show Matherly pleaded guilty to two of the misdemeanor check charges, as well as the license charge. Asked about the charges, Matherly said: “They are what they are, and that is all I have to say.”

She didn't start the fire.
It was always burning,
Since the world's been turning.
She didn't start the fire.
No she didn't light it,
But she tried to fight it.
