'Kill and Skin': Duke Alleged Rape Case E-Mail

Following rape accusations against members of the Duke University lacrosse team, the Durham, N.C., police department acquired a warrant to search a dormitory where one of the players lived.

No one has been charged with the rape.

The warrant authorized police to seize specific items related to the investigation, among them property belonging to the 27-year-old victim and any recording devices that might contain footage of the alleged incident.

The following e-mail was given to the police by a confidential source and was part of the application for a search warrant. It is believed to have been written by a player who lived in the dormitory. Police say a confidential informant identified the author of the e-mail as Ryan McFadyen, a Duke student and member of the university's lacrosse team.

The text is presented verbatim, with explicit language and sensitive information removed:
