The decade's most triggering comedy
The man suspected of stabbing convicted child molester Larry Nassar earlier this week said he attacked the former Team USA gymnastics doctor after he made a lewd comment about girls, a source told the Associated Press.
The suspect — who was identified as 49-year-old Shane McMillan — said he was watching the women’s Wimbledon tennis tournament with Nassar when the child molester said he wanted to see girls play, according to the AP’s source. McMillan then allegedly attacked Nassar in his cell with a makeshift weapon, stabbing him roughly 10 times in the back and chest before four other inmates reportedly pulled him off of the former doctor. Surveillance cameras did not catch the attack since it happened in Nassar’s cell and out of the cameras’ view.
Nassar was taken to a hospital after officials at the prison performed life-saving measures on him. The pedophile had a collapsed lung, but he remains in stable condition as of Wednesday.
McMillan was initially sentenced to more than 20 years after pleading guilty to distributing methamphetamine in 2002, but he was then convicted of assaulting a correctional officer in 2006 at a federal penitentiary in Louisiana and attempting to stab another inmate to death at a supermax prison in Colorado in 2011. He is now scheduled to be released in 2046.
Nassar, who treated some of the most well-known figures on the U.S. women’s Olympic gymnastic team, will spend the rest of his life in federal prison after more than 150 women and girls accused him of sexually abusing them over a period of 20 years. The former doctor who worked at Michigan State University admitted to using his medical position to molest girls. A total of 156 victims spoke out against Nassar in court, including high-profile athletes such as McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles, and Rachael Denhollander, who was the first to come forward detailing Nassar’s crimes in 2016.
