A grand jury has indicted Crystal Mangum in the murder of her boyfriend Reginald Daye.
She was accused of stabbing her boyfriend, Reginald Daye, during an argument. Police were dispatched to 3507 Century Oaks Drive at 3:15 a.m. April 3, and found Daye stabbed in the torso. Daye, 46, died last Wednesday at Duke Hospital, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael has said.
Mangum, the woman at the center of the Duke University lacrosse scandal five years ago, is in the Durham County jail. She originally faced a charge of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. Her bail is set at $300,000.
Five years ago, Mangum accused members of the Duke lacrosse team of sexually assaulting her while she was working as a stripper for an escort service. The accusations were eventually labeled as false, and the case was dismissed by state Attorney General Roy Cooper. The case garnered nationwide attention.
Since the spring night in 2006 when Duke lacrosse players hired her to strip at a team party, Mangum has been in and out of courtrooms and social services offices.
Mangum made headlines again last year when Durham police charged her with felony arson, child abuse, vandalism and resisting a law-enforcement officer.
Mangum was convicted of child abuse, vandalism and resisting an officer
As a Blue Devil, I am realizing there really is such a thing as karma.
Never date a girl who tried to kill her last boyfriend.
What a trail of destruction this woman’s life left.
That didn’t take long...
Oops. thanks for that.
Its Mangum not Magnum
Dating this lying drunk stripper whore must be like dating Lorena Bobbit.
(I had to check it out. Sure enough - SHE DID hook up with another man. Don’t ask me who or even why a man would sleep with a penis-chopper-offer, but someone did.)
That’s her REAL name. A stripper/hooker named MAN-gum. Truth is stranger than fiction.
Since she’s one of Holder’s People I’m shocked she even got imndicted...if the guy was a whitey she’d get away with it...
Lock her up and lose the key. She’s done enough damage for at least two or three lifetimes.
Has anyone yet said “Karma is a bitch”?
Channel 14 Charlotte:
The average murder case in North Carolina took 544 days to go to trial last fiscal year . In that time, 619 people were charged with murder and only 106 went to trial....”People get frustrated in the length of time it takes to work through the caseloads and the fact that so many cases are backlogged, said Scott Broyles, of the Charlotte School of Law.
305 pleaded to lesser charges
I believe so. And THAT my friend, is how you wipe out two scumbags in one fell swoop! Let one scumbag off the other, then arrest the perp and let her ride that lightening bolt to eternity. Just let them go at each other, and make sure you have an air-tight case.
Unfortunately, it was all too predictable.
Since this blew up in ‘06, Duke has had its share of bad publicity. But I haven’t seen any more open letters by the wonderful, big hearted faculty that was so supportive of dear Crystal. Not against Mangum after her fraud was exposed; no apology to the lax players; nothing against their pedophile colleague who tried to sell his adopted son for sex online. Just quiet as can be.
It’s Crystal Mangum, not Magnum. Mangum is a common last name in this area.
I hope she has reached her limit.
Nancy Grace has a soul mate.
Well, in fairness, we don't know if this (rather odd) turn of phrase was Jesse Deconto's idea, or if it was inserted by his editor.
In either event, I suspect the reason for it has more to do with a need to protect the Raleigh News & Observer's "street cred" than with an unwillingness, by this individual writer, to admit that the original charges against the Duke LAX team members were so much hooey.
Either way, I think this stilted, artificial, and illogical wording is tribute to the thug culture that rules in Raleigh-Durham now; an admission that the people who try to gather news in that region have to be careful not to be too truthful, lest they get their heads bashed in when they go into certain neighborhoods to get the story.
I feel sorry for her children, they don’t have a chance.
And this is the woman the Duke 88 defended, as well as the President and Boards of Duke. All those insipidly leftist people should be forced to resign and work on the chain gang for five years. With me as the overseer. I would make their lives a living Hell.
