January 18, 1979: At Saint Catherine’s, Eastern Canada, Diane Audsley is late home, so to appease her common-law husband, she claims she was abducted and raped. The phantom attacker was black. Then she claims she met two men in a bar and had sex with them willingly. Then she claims they raped her in their van after offering her a ride home! Finally, she claims to have been raped by one man in a washroom! She makes a total of three statements before the prosaic truth comes out. This article was published in The Globe And Mail, February 19, 1980, page 16. It gives her age as 23; an earlier article gave it as 24. Judging from her broken arm, her lover was not very impressed with her, ditto her own mother, and the judge who gave her thirty days.
