The Central Park Five – A Timeline [Video/Photos]
April 19, 1989
28-year-old investment banker Trisha Ellen Meili is ruthlessly attacked in Central Park. She wasn’t found until 1:30 a.m., four hours after the assault. Meili suffered blood loss, a severely fractured skull and other injuries doctor’s believed she would not survive. Remarkably, she recovered but didn’t remember anything from the assault. Authorities assumed that she was attacked by multiple suspects, given the brutality of the crime.
