What a slap to the face to a young woman's memory and more pain for her family

Huguely lawyers mounting alternative death explanation

A young woman is badly beaten and dies of blunt force trauma. Now the defence team for the young man accused of killing her wants her medical records because they say her Adderall, an amphetamine prescribed to her and which is normally prescribed for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, killed her.

That's pretty low. Blame the victim. Oh, and she'd been drinking, too. So it was all her fault someone beat her to death, even though she was apparently home not bothering anyone. Right. And this is a case where the defendant 'waived his Miranda rights and narrated graphic details of his assaulting Love, stating that he kicked open Love's locked bedroom door and "shook Love, and her head repeatedly hit the wall"'.

Things like this make me more than a little mad.
