Sad news out of Charlottesville, VA. One lacrosse player for the University of Virginia, 22-year-old Yeardley Love, was found dead in an apartment near campus. Another, George Huguely, has been charged with her murder.

George Huguely, 22, a fourth-year student from Chevy Chase, Md., is in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, according to a statement from police.[..]

Officials haven’t determined a cause of death, but Love’s body, which was found at a 14th Street Northwest apartment, showed physical trauma, according to the statement.

Witnesses told police Huguely and Love had been in a relationship, according to authorities. –Charlottesville DP.

I think we’ve learned our lesson about jumping to conclusions about allegations made against lacrosse players. That’s just unreal. Maybe one of these days, something interesting will happen in lacrosse that doesn’t involve sexual assault or a dead body. That’s my wish for the world today. That, and free OREOs.
