Duke Case: Mangum said, "Put marks on me"

updated:

Kim Roberts on GMA, Oct. 30rd Kim Roberts revealed dramatic new information about Crystal Gail Mangum, the alleged victim of the Duke lacrosse gang rape. ABC News is reporting:

The second dancer in the Duke rape case has said for the first time that the accuser told her to "go ahead, put marks on me" after the alleged attack.

Dancer Kim Roberts made the new allegation — which she has not shared with authorities — in an interview with Chris Cuomo that aired today on "Good Morning America."

[...]

Roberts said the comments "chilled me to the bone, and I decided right then and there to go to the authorities."

Roberts' attorney, Mark Simeon, said she never shared what she says were the accuser's final comments with police, not realizing their significance at the time.

He said she would be willing to take a lie detector test about the new information...
Why didn't the Durham authorities ever re-interview Ms. Roberts regarding the incident? The police investigators only personally interviewed Ms. Roberts once, on March 22nd, when they took her statement.

ABC Poll Question/Results regarding this new information at 9:45 a.m., Oct. 30th.
