Plantation Police: Slain Lawyer Wasn't Sexually Assaulted
With the dearth of information coming from the Plantation Police Department regarding the murder of attorney Melissa Lewis, I figure that even clarifying what did not happen is worth reporting here.
And one thing that did not happen, according to police spokesman Phil Toman, is a sexual assault.
I called Toman after a source from officialdom told me that a rape was involved in the horrible crime that may have originated at the Plantation Publix store. Toman (who happens to be the son of Sun-Sentinel photographer Lou Toman) was unambiguous in his answer.
"Your source is horrible," he said. "It's false."
