    Seems if the FPD wanted help they would provide a little bit better description and information on the car. So much information missing.

    @charmcclainlovesdogs2: uuuuh...do you know what consensual actually means? i don't think you do...and most of the time w/ these sorts of cases where no one has been convicted of the crime yet, its not a good idea to inform the general public of every little aspect of the event....and why are most of your questions implying that the woman was lying? those sorts of things shouldn't be the first question you ask when you hear that someone, among many others in the same area lately, has been sexually assaulted...normal people usually sympathize w/ the victim and hope the details come to light and then are surprised if it turns out the woman was less than honest...not assuming the worst from the beginning.

    This is what happens when you have an incompetent police force. Crime of all types takes place and the criminal element ends up running the town.

    They'll be searching in the dark for the serial rapist for the next 10-15 years.

    Was it rape or was it consensual? Did the woman tell the truth? How did she get into the vehicle? Was she force or did she get in the vehicle on her on accord?

    Did he force her into the vehicle?

    Is this lady telling the absolute truth. Was she willing unti whatever happen? More investigation is really needed here and on her part.

    Why is it always Fayetteville? What is going on there? There are some serious social issues that town needs to face.

    At least WRAL reported the race of the rapist, the FO didn't do that. How many 5'8" stocky men are there in Fayetteville? At least knowing the race narrows it down a little bit. Yet another unsolved rape in Fayetteville. Are they even testing the rape kits?
