Man allegedly stabbed by Duke assault accuser dies

A man who police say was recently stabbed by the accuser in the 2006 Duke University lacrosse scandal has died, the Durham County, North Carolina, medical examiner's office confirmed Thursday.

Reginald Daye, 46, died Wednesday at Duke University Hospital as a result of the stabbing earlier this month, Durham police said.

Crystal Mangum, whose accusation of rape against three Duke athletes generated national attention and sparked debate over class and race, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and inflicting serious injury in the stabbing of Daye.

    So what does the spokesperson have to say about her client now? Mangum should rot in prison for putting those players through that debacle two years ago. This woman has problems and needs to pay for her crime.

    They already came out of the woodwork, and one of them actually said she should be considered innocent until proven guilty! They had only been "seeing" each other a few weeks, and she had already moved herself and her children in with him. They interviewed his cousin locally who said he warned the guy and asked him didn't he know about her background. The schmuck was almost bragging that he was living with her. Now, he's dead. She stabbed him and took his cash, so I don't think she can declare self defense.

    Look to "Thursday's Intriguing People" for further details. This woman, Crystal Mangum, is clearly mentally ill.

      @Obs, (sigh) – yes, because they both have darker skin, and are female, so they therefore have a similar appearance. Do you feel validated, now?

    Yes she has problems but justifiably the students in the case were wrong to ever involve themselves with the likes of a person like this.
