Dateline "Infatuation" depicts bizarre love triangle in Dallas with a closeted gay crush
NBC Dateline “Infatuation” (link ) presented the mystery of the stabbing of Samantha Nance in a bizarre love triangle (or rectangle). The Dallas News has the fact history.
Daniel Willyam would be convicted largely by circumstantial evidence for a stabbing that took place in a typical Dallas garden apartment complex. Samantha had a slender boyfriend who also was a student at the Dallas Institute for the Arts. The other boyfriend had an unusual collection of trophy weapons, but turned out to have a firm alibi at the school despite the convicted suspect’s attempt to frame him. Willyam apparent had a gay crush on the other boyfriend and felt “left out” socially.
The suspect had shown anger management and jealousy problems in the Navy, and perhaps “upward affiliation”. The case is very much an aberration in the history of former gay servicemembers and “don’t ask don’t tell”.
You need your own track in life to avoid these kinds of emotional traps.
