Star-Crossed Lacrosse Lovers In Campus Murder Tragedy
May 4, 2010
The two 22-year-old’s were both players on separate lacrosse teams, well liked, and generally good kids.
It isn’t clear what happened the night that Yeardley Love was found dead, but police have said that there was no weapon used in her murder, and that the body was heavily abused.
Originally, the 911 call came in from her friend who believed she had alcohol poisoning.
“It was quickly apparent to them that this young lady was the victim of something far worse,” Police Chief Timothy Longo said.
Shortly after, George Huguely, who reportedly had had a relationship with the young woman, was arrested.
He is being held in custody, though it isn’t clear if he has yet been charged in the murder.
