Here's a Google News summary if you haven't been following things. Here's what I've gotten so far, based on various news reports: Team members decide to have a party; team captain hires 2 strippers using an assumed name Strippers show up; one is possibly intoxicated and may have bruises and contusions when she arrives Dancers do their thing for a while, but stop at some point, gather their things, and leave Dancers are apologized to and invited back into the house; they enter One of the dancers is allegedly pulled into a bathroom and assaulted by three white males. She loses false fingernails during the attack, and they are later found in the bathroom. At some point right about this time, there's a 911 call made by a female alleging that someone has yelled a racial slur towards her and a friend. The victim is later found at a grocery store in the other dancer's car; victim reports the rape to responding officers. SHe is taken to the hospital where a rape kit is done, and that exam provides evidence that a sex assault has occurred. DNA testing is done on the 46 white members of the team. NO DNA evidence matches the team members DNA! This article claims the false fingernails came off as the victim scratched at the guy who was choking her. The second dancer has changed her story almost 180 degrees, from "I don't think anything happened," to "I'm sure something happened, but I'm not sure what." At some point she's spoken with a major PR firm, and said some damning things in an email. At the moment, 2 team members have been indicted, arrested, and bonded out. The season has been canceled, and the coach has been fired. The prosecutor (who's up for reelection in a couple of weeks) is looking to charge a third team member soon. I'm not convinced she was raped, or at least I don't think she was raped by team members. The lack of DNA matches against any of the 46 white team members is very telling to me. Some reports have suggested that it's not uncommon for a sex assaults to leave no DNA, but given that she was reported to have been raped and sodomized, there should have been some DNA from one of her three attackers. Also, were any of the team members checked for injuries to their arms, from her defensive attacks? Was any DNA recovered from the fingernails that were left at the scene? There's too many questions here at the moment. I think these guys are getting crucified in the media for a number of reasons, like the race card (black single mom as victim, rich white boys as attackers), the "men are bad" card, and the rich versus poor card (Duke tuition is higher than the average per capita wage in Durham).
