A newly surfaced video shows high school students laughing about a 16-year-old girl being raped in Steubenville, Ohio.
In the 12-minute video, released yesterday by hacktivists KnightSec on Deadspin.com, there are several references to a girl being raped and urinated on.
KnightSec has been leading a crusade in response to the alleged rape of the 16-year-old girl.
Deadspin.com reports that Michael Nodianos, a former Steubenville student and baseball player, describes the girl being raped in another room in the house.
Nodianos laughs and says: "She is so raped right now. There won't be any foreplay for a dead girl. It ain't wet now to be honest. Trust me, I'm a doctor."
Nodianos jokes that the girl is "deader than a doornail" and "they p*ssed on her."
Someone, off-camera, tells Nodianos: "It is rape. They raped her... Like, this is not like funny... What if that was your daughter?"
Nodianos answers: "But it isn't. If that was my daughter, I wouldn't care. I would just let her be dead. And is it really rape if you don’t know if she wanted to or not? She might have wanted it. That might have been her final wish."
The video is part of evidence in a case, in which two 16-year-old Steubenville High School football players Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond (pictured below), have been charged with rape. They are mentioned in the video as "Trent and Ma'lik."
They have been accused of raping and kidnapping a 16-year-old girl, who was allegedly drugged and taken to several different parties where she was raped and urinated on. They were arrested on August 24, 2012, reports the Daily Mail.
However, the kidnapping charge was later thrown out.
More evidence from the investigation is focused on Twitter and Facebook accounts of the accused, who allegedly provided a play-by-play of the crime.
Mays is also accused of taking photos and a graphic video of the victim, which was posted onto YouTube. Photos of the girl passed out and being carried around were also posted online.
After the girl was finally returned home, her parents rushed her to a hospital.
Richmond’s father, Nathaniel Richmond, described his son as "a good child, an outstanding student and a credit to Steubenville High School."
