Three Teenage Girls Charged With Attempting To Murder Lesbian Classmate

Looks like we’ve got an all-female version of the Matthew Shepard case in Kentucky:

Police have arrested three teenagers, including a juvenile, on charges of kidnapping and attempted murder after a Jackson County High School student told authorities that the girls kidnapped and tried to kill her.

Cheyenne Williams, 18, of McKee, signed a sworn criminal complaint Monday, saying she was abducted on Friday by Corinne M. Schwab, 18, of Sandgap; Ashley N. Sams, 18, of Annville; and a 17-year-old girl who was not identified because she is a juvenile.

Williams told police she was attacked as a result of her sexual orientation, state police Detective Joie Peters said.

The criminal complaint says the girls unlawfully restrained and tried to cause Williams’ death. The intent was to “accomplish or advance the commission of a felony and to inflict bodily injury or to terrorize” Williams. The complaint, which was signed by George Hays, the Jackson County attorney, does not provide any other details. Hays declined to comment.

State police issued a news release Tuesday that says Williams was “taken against her will to the Flat Lick Falls area” where she was assaulted and that the other three girls “attempted to push her over a cliff, which could have resulted in serious physical injury or death.”

Williams was able to escape and get to safety, the report says.

Peters said the teens have been friends since sixth grade and all are students at Jackson County High School. Williams told police that she initially went with the others willingly and thought they were joking with her, but she said she later got scared, Peters said. Williams said the others then attacked her.

Williams videotaped the incident on her cell phone, Peters said

A horrible crime in any case, but if the allegations are true, it’s the bias angle that’s going to turn this into a national story.

    That, and bloggers who are trying to advance the radical homosexual agenda for what is, for whatever reason, a serious alleged crime.

  2. Good lord James do you ever give up on this ?

  3. deadletter says:

    I love the radical homosexual agenda that asks for a world free of being thrown off a cliff for being different!

  4. heyrey says:

    James is craving some radical homosexual agenda. Let’s get to it boys.

  5. The Fury says:

    I personally like James. He makes me laugh =)

  6. I like James too, but his opinions in this area are rather strong

    Gee, you’re right, Doug. After all, it’s not like there are people out there who will use criminal acts to advance their personal political agendas. Or trump up events to do so. Or that teenagers sometimes lie to cover up their own misdeeds. Never mind the questionable circumstances. Never mind that this was a complaint filed by the alleged victim, and it’s ALL based upon her statements of alleged victimhood. Much better to draw conclusions first, and ascertain the facts later. After all, it’s not like anyone’s reputation is at stake.

    Tawana Brawley was right, and a victim, and Al Sharpton has been subject to unfair criticism all these years.

  8. James,

    Which is why I used the phrase “if these allegations are true’

    Are you at least willing to admit that the attack on Matthew Shepard was despicable ? And that this one is true, if the allegations are true ?

    Give him the opportunity and James will go lynch a gay or two. “The radical homosexual agenda”? What the fuck is that? I really hope one day James will have a gay kid.
