Hey remember Duke Lacrosse? Sure you do. Never in your lifetime did you utter the word lacrosse until this story broke back in March.
Now the second dancer at the party and the backbone of the prosecution's case against three Duke lacrosse players has changed her story. There have been doubts if any alleged rape occurred. The victim's background was sketchy and all DNA evidence does not match any of the lacrosse players.
In an interview that will air on "60 Mintues" this Sunday Kim Roberts, the second dancer, no longer supports the alleged victim's story.
"Did she give you any reason to believe that she had been assaulted?" Ed Bradley asked Roberts.
"No," Roberts said. "She obviously wasn't hurt, because, you know, she was fine."
Two of the defendants said they weren't even at the party. I believed this woman's story even less when DNA evidence came back negative. Now her ex co-worker/friend doesn't believe anything happened. There is nothing left to support this case. If it turns out to be a bunch of lies, there needs to be some serious punishment for the destruction left in its path.
