I've found Dan!

I think there is a really good definitive test that may show if the accuser in the Duke Lacrosse case is making false accusations or at least flat wrong about her IDs. I have no clue if anyone has picked up on it but I just found Dan! In case those who might have forgotten, the accuser stated that three lacrosse players attacked her and that they gave their names as Adam, Brett, and Matt. A lot of people have wondered about this when the fact that neither Seligmann nor Finnerty had first names that matched. The accuser however goes on to state how she believed that some of them might have been using aliases. This is cited by police offiers in the search warrant application listed below and that specifically the one who was introduced to himself as 'Adam' was being called Dan by others at the party.

So who could this third individual be and dosen't the fact that she specificly states that Adam was called 'Dan' bolster her claim? After all, where would she otherwise get that from? And that's where we have the test to once and for all figure out if this is a fabrication or not. All it requires is that we get an idea of who she picked as the 3rd attacker with what she claims is 90% accuracy because I know who 'Dan' is. I'm surprised that other media outlets haven't reported this but here's 'Dan':

Using the name Adam, Dan Flannery, a senior team captain, called an escort service and hired two dancers for $400 each.

Ta da. The person she's accusing of being the third suspect can be no other than Dan Flannery, and she would know both his name and alias because he was the one who not only hired her, but was the one to pay her as well. This might be the individual that she had the most contact with that night before the alleged assault. So who was the third picture she pulled from the lineup with her claim of 90% accuracy? If it wasn't Flannery's than we either know that the IDs are completely worthless or that it's a fabrication. Adam aka Dan was the only one she would have known for sure who was using an alias that night since she had to meet him upfront upon arriving at the house. If she were seeking to bolster her claims of an assault, she would naturally hope to be able to name the individuals correctly and he was the only one who she would have known for sure what his name was and how it was different from the alias he gave to hire her.

Once we get a better look at the lineup report and see who the 90% photo pick was, we can get a much better idea if the lineup is a crock and possibly some insight into whether the entire accusation is crap. It won't prove her case, but it might help greatly in disproving it if the photo is not Flannery's.
