A Durham county police report originally filed in 1990 surfaced recently and listed Glenn Beck as a suspect in a rape case. Despite the great likelihood of this being the product of a simple mix up of names-  there are some eerie coincidences that are worth mentioning. For starters, the crime remains unsolved, despite a county-wide effort to find the alleged rapist.

 title=The manhunt for the suspect briefly caught the attention of Durham’s local media after numerous reports were leaked stating that the rapist, not the victim,  cried throughout the encounter. Soon thereafter, the local Durham media began referring to the wanted suspect as the "crying rapist." Coincidence? Maybe.
The local media attention around the case only intensified after Durham’s Channel 4 ran an interview with Gwendolyn Sutton, the officer who responded to the rape call. In the interview, Officer Sutton claimed "the victim told me the rapist whispered the phrase ‘I’m doing because I love my country’ repeatedly as he cried and raped her." Sutton added, "before the rapist ran away he looked at the elderly lady and reportedly told her ‘in the future a brilliant black man will run the government and get it to kill you’ or something weird to that nature." After weeks of extensive searches and chasing countless dead leads, the county-wide manhunt for the "Crying Rapist" died down and local media coverage eventually faded out as well and turned its attention to the town’s annual bake sale and Big Betty’s Brownie Bonanza, another local town favorite.
The case has since then gone cold as leads have been sparse at best, but this has not deterred the Durham Police Department, who have vowed to keep the case open. They remain hopeful they will get around to catching the rapist one day despite the only evidence left on the case is the report pictured above. All other evidence was either lost or destroyed during the late nineties when the current County Sheriff took over and literally cleaned house. The whereabouts of the elderly victim are unknown as she moved away shortly after the incident. Considering she was 85 years old when the alleged rape took place, it is reasonable to conclude she is deceased by now. She had little, if any, known family and friends which made contacting her for this article nearly impossible.

No one has claimed responsibility for the rape of that woman in 1990. It would be wrong not to speculate and pose the question- Did Glenn Beck rape that woman in 1990? If Beck is innocent, he should simply silence the allegations by denying them publicly, preferably on his show. However, the FoxNews show host has not even publicly addressed the allegations, instead he has chosen to sue a concerned citizen over starting a website devoted to controversy. The concerned citizen has even gone as far as posting a $200 reward out of his own pocket for whoever comes forward with proof that Glenn Beck did not rape a woman in 1990. The filing of the lawsuit seems unnecessary, and even borderline insane when you consider the helpfulness of the concerned citizen in trying to prove Beck’s innocence.

The tiny, dark, and tumultuous cloud of suspicion hanging over Glenn Beck’s head will only continue to grow and worsen- unless he publicly denies the allegations that he raped a woman in 1990. Until then, we can only assume his silence is an indication that he has something to hide. Why else would Beck file a lawsuit instead of simply denying the rumors?

By remaining silent on the issue, Glenn Beck is only raping whatever is left of his credibility.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
