Lincoln Nebraska Lesbian Bound, Gagged, With Anti-Gay Slurs Cut Into Her Body Survives Brutal Hate Crime

A Lincoln, Nebraska woman became the victim of HORRIBLE hate crime on Sunday morning when three masked men  barged into her house, bound her wrists and ankles with zip  ties, cut her all over her body and carved homophobic slurs into her skin before  dumping gasoline on her floor of her house and lighting it with a match.

The woman survived crawling  from her blazing house, naked and bleeding and screaming for help  reaching the doorstep of a neighbor’s home.

The Omaha World Herald adds:

[Capt. Jim] Davidsaver said the victim’s  description of the suspects was limited because of the masks. When police  arrived, the house was still on fire, the captain said. He said it caused about  $200 in damage. Davidsaver would not say what words the men carved into the  woman’s skin. “We need to maintain the integrity of the case,” he  said.

But Erin Thompson of Lincoln, who described herself as the victim’s  best friend, said she got a call from her friend about 6:30 Sunday morning. The  friend asked Thompson to pick her up from the hospital.

“They carved on  me,” Thompson said her friend tearfully told her.

Thompson said three  epithets, including the word “dyke,” were carved on the woman’s arms and  stomach.

Police are still searching for suspects and have not made any arrests.

A Facebook group has also been formed. and a vigil for the poor women took place Sunday night attended by hundreds:
