Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Gorgeous College Professor-Turned-Bloody-Pulp, Eyes Gouged by Love-Obsessed Co-Worker

When state troopers arrive at Lauret Savoy’s home, just after midnight, they find the acclaimed author lying in a pool of blood. She had been severely beaten. By Savoy’s side is her friend of 14 years and colleague at Mount Holyoke College, art professor Rie Hachiyanagi. It was Hachiyanagi who called 911.

Savoy tells the police she can’t offer any information on the person who attacked her. The professor is rushed to a local hospital with severe blunt force trauma. She has multiple broken bones and fractures in her face, numerous cuts, and puncture wounds and there was evidence that the assailant had tried to gouge out the Savoy’s eyes.

At the hospital,  Lauret Savoy tells police, she lied, out of fear. Her attacker was her long-time friend, Rie Hachiyanagi.
