Stripper claimed Detroit mayor's wife attacked her, former clerk says

Detroit News
A retired Detroit Police Department clerk said an exotic dancer whose murder remains unsolved filed a police report in 2002, wanting to press charges against Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's wife after she allegedly beat the stripper during a party at the Manoogian Mansion.

The claim, made Monday in a federal court filing, alleges that Tamara Greene was sent to the hospital after Carlita Kilpatrick walked in, saw Greene touching the mayor and then beat Greene "with a wooden object."

Joyce Rogers, 65, of Troy, signed an affidavit saying she saw the police report in 2002. The startling accusations, if true, could put a dent in claims that the party and the beating never took place. On April 30, 2003, Greene was murdered and her family has said top city officials interfered with the murder investigation for political reasons.
