Gay Nebraska woman tied up, mutilated in hate-crime assault, police say
New York Daily News ^ | July 24 2012 | Erik Ortiz

Posted on 07/24/2012 7:14:04 AM PDT by scottjewell

Three masked men allegedly broke into a 33-year-old lesbian woman’s home, bound her arms and carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and abdomen.

A vigil was held in support of the woman who was allegedly attacked for her sexual orientation.

A 33-year-old Nebraska woman said three masked intruders tied her up, carved homophobic slurs into her skin and then set her house on fire in a shocking case that police are reportedly classifying as a hate crime.

A spokeswoman for the Lincoln Police Department told CNN on Monday investigators found a derogatory slur used against lesbians spray painted inside her home following the attack early Sunday morning.

The woman, an open homosexual who was not identified in local reports, made her way to a neighbor’s home after her assailants left. She called police around 4 a.m. “I was in shock,” neighbor Linda Rappl told CNN. “She was naked, her hands were tied with zip ties. All I could see was a cut across her forehead and blood running down.”

The woman told police three men wearing ski masks broke into her home and bound her hands, the Omaha World-Herald reported. The men also reportedly used a knife to cut the gay slurs into her skin and then doused her home with gasoline to start the blaze.

“... but why does this smell of a hoax..?”

I thought the same thing, SC. If I was a betting person, my money would be placed in the “hoax” category.

In the past, these supposed antilesbian attacks have been faked by the lesbian. I don’t know if this one has been made up but.....

if a queer gets asphyxiated during some kinky game involving whips, chains, chocolate syrup and Drano, they’d probably call it a “hate crime”.

Maybe because she wasn’t raped or sexually assaulted

the body writing stuff....? Seriously, what angry men do THAT when their masculinity is threatened?

This one screams “lesbian attack” due to love affair, rejecton or other deviant love triangle gone bad, or lesbian attack to gain sympathy

time will tell

While reading the article, I was looking to see if the police found her all tied up but, no, she was freed and turned up at a neighbor's house.

There is only her word that this happened to her by outside attackers. That's why this smells fishy to me

I agree with all these who smell HOAX. Knee jerk response for me was to wonder what gay spat was behind this. It seems well documented that same sex relationships are more prone to spouse abuse than their heterosexual opposites.I so smell HOAX in this yellow journalism.

why does this smell of a hoax as so many others have been?

Its unfortuneate, but true due to the attention-whore incidents of the past few years. Seems to be a behavioral trait that comes with the lifestyle. Could be a hoax or mutilation by a scorned gay lover who attacked, but immediately after "reconciled" and the two devised a "hate crime" story to explain what happened.

Yep, these sorts of bizarro attacks tend to be more symptomatic of an emotional outburst one might see in an outraged lover than any random "hate" crime. Why would anyone break in one her to do her violence . . . and not rape her as well.

This one stinks to high heaven. First thought was, "BS!"

Right, that’s a huge red flag, and I’ll bet the cops already have noted that, just not saying anything until they can be sure. If this does turn out to be a hoax (I’d say there is a 90% chance it is) I hope and pray the outrage will be enormous.

Sounds like a hoax to me. The police probably see the same, but will play along for now. They will want the hoaxer to believe she is home free, she will be more likely to slip up in the cover up.

It sounds fake because, how do you find three people stupid enough to feel SO threatened by a woman’s homosexuality that they get together to commit felonies upon her and for what end result?

I suppose it could happen and it may be that it did. I’m just explaining why it doesn’t pass the smell test.

You could be right. In any case, I trust cops will do their work and get to the bottom of it. I cannot believe the media is jumping all over something that reeks of self-inflicted prank as though it is believable in any way, shape, or form. And a vigil already? They should’ve sat on it until it was confirmed. Somehow, do not think it will be.

You nailed it: It doesn’t pass the smell test. The cops must be on to it , as all say, just biding their time until she “cracks”. If this is true, I’ll be shocked.

“lesbian attack” - I’ve heard that police reports of domestic homicides in lesbian households are often brutal to the point of unreality.

Usually involves a knife, and the killer only stops stabbing when she’s exhausted to the point that she can’t raise her arm for another strike.

I was thinking of accomplices too, some gay guys perhaps, posing as the masked men and helping with the staging. It is a felony to stage a crime scene in any case.

The only circumstance where I could see three straights beating up a gay, would be if the gay person had molested one of their kids. They wouldn't carve anything on her, though -- that particular act sounds like something a woman would do to another woman.

I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt... FOR NOW, as sometimes, just sometimes, bad and bizarre things do indeed happen to people. I am mindful of the fact that the Brandon Teena/Teena Brandon case (basis for the movie “Boys Don’t Cry” also occurred in Nebraska.

I know a lot of folks on here won’t find such an opinion all that popular, but I do try and look at folks as human beings first and foremost, unless the prove unworthy of such consideration.

With all that said, if this is indeed a hoax, my “sympathy meter” for this person will immediately fall below zero.

My thoughts also. If true, the criminals committed a violent crime and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of the alleged “hate” motivation. If false, she’s guilty of filing a false official report with the police and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Let’s move on with life instead of wallowing in mostly invented stories of victimization.

All these accounts of hundreds attending vigils! And yet what police say sounds ever more rotten: "The friend said the woman crawled from her house, naked and bleeding and screaming for help before reaching the doorstep of a neighbor's home. Late Sunday, police said they still were investigating the case and had yet to release an account of what they believe happened inside the home. Lincoln Police Capt. Joe Wright said officers were called to 22nd and E streets on a report of a fire and found the woman across the street from her house. They were told she had been assaulted by more than one suspect, who then started the house on fire, he said. City fire Inspector Damon Robbins said a match flame ignited vapors from a pool of gasoline on the woman's floor, but the flash fire did not continue to burn and caused no noticeable damage to the house. Police Chief Jim Peschong declined to comment further on the status of the investigation or its findings. No arrests had been made as of late Sunday." http://journalstar.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/woman-attacked-in-home-at-nd-and-e-streets/article_d0892b58-9ec9-566c-8b66-bb0a032b8e03.html
