After assault by Duke Lacrosse team, player wrote of killing, skinning strippers
APRIL 5--Shortly after an exotic dancer claimed she was raped at a Duke University lacrosse team party, a member of the squad sent an e-mail announcing that the following night he planned "to have some strippers over" and would be "killing the bitches" as soon as they walked into his dorm room. Disclosure of the e-mail came today with the unsealing of a March 27 search warrant for the residence of Ryan McFadyen, a sophomore lacrosse player. According to the warrant, the e-mail was provided to Durham cops by a confidential source who received the correspondence from McFadyen's Duke e-mail account at 1:58 AM on March 14. According to the dancer, she was attacked earlier that morning at a team party (the woman and another dancer had been hired for $400 to perform at a home rented by three of the squad's captains). The e-mail from McFadyen's account notes that, after the strippers were killed, they would be skinned while the author was "cumming in my duke issue spandex." The e-mail is signed "41," which is McFadyen's jersey number. Following a search of the athlete's room and car, investigators walked away with two laptops, a memory card, a disposable camera, cash, and other items. Agents also seized a poster described as "the shocker" from McFadyen's room and a "piece of paper--in vehicle suckie suckie $5.00."
Here is a link to the probable cause affadavit, filed by the Durham (N.C.) Police Department, which led to the charges:

Duke Lacrosse Coach Resigns
Duke men’s lacrosse coach Mike Pressler resigned today, shortly after the unsealing of a warrant related to a Durham police investigation of a reported rape at an offcampus party attended by members of Pressler’s team.
Calling the contents of an e-mail included with the warrant “sickening and repulsive,” Duke University president Richard Brodhead announced the cancellation of the remainder of the Blue Devils men’s lacrosse season in a separate statement.
“Coach Pressler offered me his resignation earlier this afternoon, and I accepted it,” Duke athletics director Joe Alleva said in a statement released at 4:36 p.m. “I fully support President Broadhead’s decision to cancel the remainder of the season as well as his outrage at the latest developments involving the men’s lacrosse program. I believe this is in the best interests of the program, the department of athletics and the university.”
A three-time ACC Coach of the Year, Pressler coached 16 seasons at Duke and guided the Blue Devils to the 2005 NCAA championship game. He was not available for comment.
The documents made public today included the text of an e-mail message sent from the e-mail account of team member Ryan McFadyen, a sophomore defenseman from Mendham, N.J. In the message, sent about 30 minutes after an escort service stripper told police on March 14 she had been raped at the party, the writer talks of hiring strippers for another party and killing them.
“Tomorrow night, after tonights show, ive decided to have some strippers over,” the message read. “However there will be no nudity. i plan on killing bitches as soon as the walk in and proceeding to cut their skin off.”
Brodhead’s statement did not mention McFadyen by name, but cited federal privacy regulations that prohibit the university from releasing any information regarding individual student disciplinary matters.
However, Brodhead said, “in situations where a threat to the safety of an individual or members of the university community exists, Vice President Moneta typically executes an interim suspension.”

Glad they caught the son of a bitch when he was still stupid enough to advertise it over email. Who knows in 5...10 years? Scary thought. Hopefully he'll get what he deserves."A nation, as a society, forms a moral person, and every member of it is personally responsible for his society."
