The email, sent out by a friend of the victim on Monday afternoon, reports -

Please be careful around J-Blacks and Capitol [Henderson Avenue intersection]. A friend of a co-worker's was brutally beaten and raped while walking to her car last night [Sunday night] from J Blacks. She was with the group watching the [Mavericks] game all night and left the bar around 2am. She was apparently parked on the street behind Capitol (near that park/school).

No one knows exactly yet how and when it happenned, but she was found at 6 am this [Monday] morning on the street near Capitol naked and severely beaten.

So please, please pass this story on to all your friends and tell them to be careful around there. I have many times walked to my car myself from Capitol and thought nothing of it, but it is still obviously a very rough neighborhood.

More details as we get them.
