2nd search warrant released in rape investigation

According to court documents released Wednesday, investigators searched a dormitory room March 27 and seized several items, after a dancer hired by the Duke men's lacrosse team was allegedly raped by three team members at a party March 13.

The searched room in Edens Dormitory 2C belongs to sophomore Ryan McFadyen, a member of the lacrosse team.

Police obtained an e-mail from a confidential source sent from McFadyen's Duke e-mail address March 14 at 1:58 a.m., right after the party.

"After tonight's show, i've decided to have some strippers over to edens 2c," the writer of the e-mail wrote, noting, however, there would be no nudity. "i plan on killing the b- as soon as [they] walk in and proceeding to cut their skin off while - in my duke issue spandex."

Items seized in the police raid included $60 in cash, two laptops and memory cards, an external hard drive, a camera and a backpack with the number 41, McFadyen's jersey number.
