N.C. Sheriff: Pregnant Marine Is Dead, Comrade She Accused of Rape Is Main Suspect
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (Associated Press) -- Authorities searched a neighborhood Friday for a shallow grave holding the body of a pregnant Marine, and said the main suspect in her death was a comrade she had accused of rape.
I sure wish the idiots who write these stories had a better grasp of the English language! The story is horrific enough without painting an accused rapist and murderer as a "comrade" of the victim. No true comrade or friend would be capable of such acts.
Information from another woman, a former Marine, left investigators certain that Lance Cpl. Maria Frances Lauterbach was dead, even though they hadn't found her remains, Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown said.
Lauterbach, 20, vanished just before she was to testify in a military probe.
