The house where an exotic dancer said she was raped by three Duke University lacrosse players was demolished today. More than 4 years ago Crystal Mangum claimed three white players trapped her inside one of the house’s bathrooms and raped and sexually assaulted her at a party.  The house has remained vacant since that claim and because it is now an eyesore that’s fallen into disrepair, Duke’s vice president for public affairs and government relations has decided to tear it down.   

The three players were indicted and arrested on rape and other charges on the basis of her allegations, but North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper dismissed the case more than a year later after special prosecutors found no credible evidence to support Mangum’s claims.
