GREENFIELD — The victim’s role doesn’t fit Trisha Meili at all. She’s vibrant, stylish, witty, candid, humble, engaging, Yale-educated. Her smile comes easily. No question is out of bounds.
Yet Meili will forever be known publicly as the Central Park jogger, the 28-year-old woman savagely beaten, raped and left for dead in Central Park in 1989. The brutal attack and its random senselessness in New York City astounded a nation awash in violence.
