Fitchburg murder, Brittingham park assault

Postby Shorty » Mon Sep 10, 2012 8:23 pm

It was a violent weekend, unfortunately. But not the bars downtown this time. Both suspects are still on the loose.

Police search for Fitchburg homicide suspect
Suspect considered 'armed and dangerous

"Fitchburg police said Dominique R. Hale, 25, forced his way into a Fitchburg apartment at Greenway Cross and Coho Street, killed Taylor and then hurt a woman...nvestigators said Hale knew the female victim and that the attack was not random. "More than likely it's a boyfriend-girlfriend scenario -- possibly a new friend is involved. That's the preliminary look at this point," said Lt. Chad Brecklin, of the Fitchburg Police Department."

From the first article:

Police said Hale has a violent criminal history, pleading guilty in a 2007 Dane County case of torture and sexual assault.


So he was convicted of torture and sexual assault in 2007 and then murdered someone in 2012? How long has he been out of jail?

I hate the term "sexual assault".

It does actual (legitimate!) "rape" little justice and to me takes away from the severity of it.

A sexual assault could be anything from a slap on the butt to a full on violent gang rape.

Why and when did they start using sexual assault to encompass all of this?

I don't like it.
