More Dastardly Duke Deeds

The Duke lacrosse incident continued to spiral out of control on Wednesday when authorities unsealed documents that reveal a sordid email which was allegedly sent by one of the Duke players. The email was apparently sent less than two hours after the rape of a stripper at a house near the Duke campus.

The email is said to have included an eerie message regarding the plans of one player.

"I plan on killing the bitches as soon as the(y) walk in and proceeding to cut their skin off," the author wrote, adding in vulgar terms that he would find the act sexually satisfying. The author then signed the email with his jersey number.

The genius probably also didn’t realize that there is a “From” line on most emails. Yeah, use your jersey number. That’ll fool em. The bonehead author is reported to have attended one of the "Take Back the Night" marches on campus on March 29. We’re thinking he may have misunderstood the purpose of the march.

The effects of the email’s release were swift. Lacrosse coach Mike Pressler resigned within hours and the remainder of Duke’s season was cancelled. An internal probe into the university's response to alleged violence by athletes was also commissioned by Duke President Richard H. Brodhead.
