This crime is disgusting in every single way. A young woman says she woman was lured to a trailer, held captive, raped, beaten and tortured, forced to eat rat and human faeces, subjected to racist slurs….. yet, to this moment, no hate crime has been filed! AND where the hell are the media? Why is no one in the mainstream taking up her cause?
UPDATE: This story had some further developments, more info at the end of the article.
Megan Williams thought she was going to a party.
That’s why she tagged along with a woman she hardly knew, up a remote southern West Virginia hollow to a run-down trailer surrounded by beer cans and broken-down furniture.
“But there wasn’t no party,” Williams said. “I realized I’d made a bad mistake.”
For at least a week, authorities say, the 20-year-old black woman was kept captive in a shed, tortured, beaten, forced to eat rat, dog and human feces, and raped by six white men and women who taunted her with racial slurs.
“They just kept saying ‘This is what we do to niggers down here,’” Williams told The Associated Press in one of her most extensive interviews since the shocking case made national headlines last month.
Seated in a rocking chair in her mother’s living room, about 50 miles from that shed, the slight woman with cocoa-colored skin says she was hopelessly outnumbered by people who just wanted to hurt a black person.
“I just hope they fry for what they did to me. That’s really all I got to say,” she said. “I hope they fry.”
West Virginia does not have a death penalty, but the six suspects could spend the rest of their lives in prison if convicted of rape and kidnapping charges.
