Default Re: Nigga's Caught By White Man's Voodoo! DNA/Cold Case


A Tulane student was raped at gunpoint in 1975; now a New Orleans man has been charged
Updated Oct 8, 2020 at 8:50 pm

Four decades after a Tulane University student was raped at gunpoint inside her off-campus apartment, a grand jury used cold case DNA evidence Thursday to indict a New Orleans East man in the crime.

Ronald Craig, 64, was charged with aggravated rape and aggravated kidnapping in the Sept. 21, 1975
, assault at the woman's apartment in the 5300 block of Magazine Street. Craig is accused of breaking into her apartment with another man, both the men masked at the time.

The dormant investigation was revived after a conversation in November at a law enforcement conference in Jacksonville, Florida, the Orleans Parish district attorney's office said. There, two assistant Orleans district attorneys met a Cuyahoga County, Ohio, prosecutor who would later tell them of an Ohio woman - a Tulane alumna - who survived an unsolved rape in New Orleans in the 1970s.

Investigators David Benelli of the DA's office and Kevin Richardson of the New Orleans Police Department began hunting for the 45-year-old files and found underwear and a bedsheet associated with the rape. The Louisiana State Police Crime Laboratory examined the evidence, and DNA was found to match that of Craig, who has "a long history of violent felonies and narcotics and parole violations," the DA's office said.
