Central Park Jogger Rape Story

It was on April 19, 1989, Trisha came home from her job at around 8 p.m and then she got ready for jogging at Manhattan’s Central park. At around 9 p.m on that night she was attacked, raped and brutally beaten near death by a gang of teenagers. However, after an hour two unknown people found her body in a horrible condition and she was covered in mud and blood with her skull fractured. Immediately the victim was taken to Metropolitan Hospital for treatment but she remained in coma for over 12 days. In fact, due to the severe brain injury Meili has lost her memory of that incident and doesn’t remember anything after 5 p.m of that evening.

Related to the Central Park case the police arrested 5 Afro-American Teenage boys named Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana Jr, Korey Wise, Kevin Richardson, and Anton McCray. These five teenagers were wrongly convicted of rape and attack and were put for jail for 5-10 years inspite of the lack of physical evidence.

Later in 2002, the serial rapist Matias Reyes confessed that he is the real culprit behind the attack and rape of Trisha. The Central Park Five were later released from prison after Matias confessed but they demanded compensation from New York city for racial discrimination and mental torture which got settled for $ 41 million dollars.
