DURHAM -- Prosecutor Mark McCullough opened Crystal Mangums arson trial today with the names of her three children...
That residence had a fire started in it while they were in it -- by her, McCullough said, pointing his finger at Mangum. This case is not complicated.
Defense attorney ...Dexter did not deny the basic facts of the case: That Mangum piled her boyfriend Milton Walkers clothes in the bathtub and set them on fire, then threatened to stab Walker, all in the presence of two police officers who had gone to the couples home after Ariana called 911 to say they were fighting and her mother was going to die. Police say Mangum also gave them her sisters name as her own and struggled as they tried to arrest her.

I try not to be mean-hearted, but if that lady got hit by a bus or trampled by crack heads at Walmart on Black Friday, I would not be overly sad.
She has a long, long record:
accusing three friends of gang-raping her; stealing a taxi
and trying to run over a policemen with it; attacking a customer at a strip club (violently pulling the woman customer’s hair);
drug use; accusing her ex-husband of dragging her into the woods and trying to kill her; claiming her grandmother was murdered by being pushed down stairs (not true); and...
to get out of being confined to a detox center, claiming
Duke lacrosse players (either 2, 3, 5, or 20 of them) raped her.
“...claiming Duke lacrosse players (either 2, 3, 5, or 20 of them) raped her.:”
Of course, everyone believed her, because women don’t lie about rape...
(even though there were photos and time cards and witnesses and much more to prove that two of those ultimately accused
weren’t even present at the supposed time; and DNA tests
cleared everyone two weeks before any arrests were made...)
Someone needs to politely inform Crystal that the “use by” date of her fifteen minutes of fame expired a long, long time ago, and she needs to just gracefully (snicker!) fade away from the spotlight...
