Disgraced former North Carolina DA, Michael NiFong, is (somewhat) back in the news. Remember this pathetic rogue prosecutor back in 2006? He falsely pursued prosecution of 3 innocent Duke University Lacrosse players for rape, sexual offenses and kidnapping of then 27yo, Crystal Mangum. His motive was to stir up the public to win support for his re-election bid. Today, Crystal is on the other side of the law - for MURDER.
Durham, N.C. — Family members of a man who was stabbed in his home April 3 say he died Wednesday evening. Crystal Mangum, the Durham woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape in 2006, has been charged with assaulting him.
Durham police confirmed Thursday morning that Reginald Daye, 46, had died.
"The case remains under investigation, and we do anticipate upgrading the charges. However, no new charges have been filed at this time," police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said in an e-mail to WRAL News.
Police said Mangum, 32, stabbed Daye in the torso with a kitchen knife during a dispute at 3507 Century Oaks Drive early on April 3.
Daye was taken to Duke University Hospital, and Mangum was arrested in a nearby apartment.
A man who said he was Daye's nephew called 911 to report the stabbing, saying it occurred while Daye and his girlfriend were arguing about rent money. The caller said police came to the apartment complex earlier while the couple argued, but the stabbing occurred after the officers left.
When asked for a description of the girlfriend, the caller said, "It's Crystal Mangum. THE Crystal Mangum."
He then added, "I told him she was trouble from the beginning."
Mangum was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and was being held in the Durham County jail on a $300,000 bond.
In March 2006, Mangum claimed three white players on the Duke lacrosse team trapped her inside a bathroom at 610 N. Buchanan Blvd., where she was performing as a stripper at a team party, and raped and sexually assaulted her. Link
Some woman of character, huh?
Since the 2006 debacle of destroying the livelihood of 3 innocent Duke University men, Crystal Mangum has not kept her nose clean with the law. In February 2010, she was charged with attempted murder after a fight with her then-boyfriend and later accused of arson, identity theft and resisting arrest, among other charges.
If this woman was a criminal after the Duke Lacrosse, one could guess she had a criminal background before the case and DA NiFong completely ignored dual diligence to investigate this victim's story, credibility and background.
She should hire NiFong to help defend her murder charge!
I wonder what Nancy Grace has to say about Crystal Mangum now?!
Nancy Grace = Nasty Disgrace
