Life Until Parole: More on The Queen’s Daughter— the Melissa McCormick Racist Atrocity—and a Similar Case from Los Angeles
[Previously, at WEJB/NSU:
“Surviving Detroit: An Episode on Investigative Discovery.]
By David in TN
I once came across a case in Los Angeles, where a white woman had a flat tire on the freeway and a black “good Samaritan” stopped to change the tire. He then took her to a house in South Central and with some friends gang-raped her.
The woman did survive, but the main perp claimed she’d gone to the house voluntarily and had "consensual sex." The affair was settled by a plea bargain.
The above is from a 2-3 paragraph anecdote in the 1996 book, The D.A.
By the way, there was a black good Samaritan in the Melissa McCormick case, but a carload of “men” drove up, beat up the good Samaritan, and took Miss McCormick away. See the ID Channel episode mentioned and linked to above for what happened.
The “leader” of the gang of rapists that violated Melissa McCormick, one Joseph Evans, was paroled on June 30 of this year. He had pleaded guilty and was sentenced to "life without parole," but was paroled after 39 years. The excuse was Evans is over 60 and they are releasing prisoners that age to make room for younger offenders.
This information is from The Queen's Daughter website. Today I ordered the book.
