Star-Crossed Lacrosse Lovers In Campus Murder Tragedy

May 4, 2010

Virginia (ChattahBox) – Tragedy struck the Virginia University when a 22-year-old student was found murdered brutally in her dorm room, and her former boyfriend was taken into custody.

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.

    “The two 22-year-old’s were both players on separate lacrosse teams,”

    I laughed when I read this- yes- they played on separate lacrosse teams- since they were opposite sexes- that’s how collegiate sports work.

    More proof of the usefulness of editors-

    Mastro – It was a simple way to avoid confusion, or an attempt, at any rate. I didn’t want to get into the details of the lacrosse teams, the way college sports work, or anything else. It was a short writeup of the death, that’s all. But people will jump all over the smallest note and avoid the point of the story in order to argue. As you just proved to the class.
