Police say the suspect is a heavy set black male, around 5'10".You might think that if there is a stranger-rapist abroad in Lincoln (and one needs always to be somewhat skeptical of crime reports like this one) that it might be useful for the public to have a rough description. You might think.
RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

...but not if he's black and the crime was rape.
A 16- year old girl was allegedly raped under the 27th street overpass in Lincoln last night, around 1 a.m., by a stranger. In this case the Journal-Star did not give a description. However, KLKN TV does.
