July 16, 1992: A mother of three is allegedly raped in her backyard while her daughter is watching television indoors. Although she does not identify her assailant, she gives significant details about him; she also claims he had been stalking her for weeks. In late September, it is reported that Rockbridge County Sheriff Bob Day had concluded the woman was not telling the truth.
She underwent medical tests, the results of which were not disclosed, but from the details I have seen she was a HEAD CASE, which is presumably the reason the authorities decided not to prosecute her. The reader is invited to compare this case with that of Gail Sherwood.
The above is based on a report by Victoria Ratcliff in The Roanoke Times, STATE Edition, page A1, as shown below.
