A University of North Georgia (UNG) student who told multiple students that she had been sexually assaulted years ago and poisoned her alleged attacker with hemlock have been deemed unfounded by the school's Public Safety department.
The Gainesville Times reported that the student, who has not been named by media outlets and has not been charged with any crimes, told her roommates that she had poisoned her rapist with hemlock years earlier. The female student reportedly named the man she allegedly murdered, but the two roommates who first reported her claims to UNG police could not remember his name.
UNG police were also told that the hemlock caused the man to have a heart attack, which led to him crashing his car and dying. Other students also told the police some version of the woman's claims, but the student herself denied telling the story when police asked her about it in an interview.
The Times reported that the police report explained that the allegations caused a "severe disruption and interference"
within the university community.
"This incident has caused panic among the community both locally, and those distant but related to UNG,"
the police report said. "I received copies of over 11 different posts to UNG social media pages in which parents were worried about the murder allegation."
Despite the disruption to campus, the District Attorney's office said it "did not see any strong case"
to charge the woman who made the false allegations.
"This case seems to be one where (the student) imagined and told elaborate false stories to multiple people in her life dating back to 2020 before she became a UNG student,"
the report said. "(The student's) motive for these stories (is) unknown at this time."
More from the Times:
UNG's Vice President of University Relations Kate Maine said she did not have an estimate on hours or resources spent in investigating this case.
The officer's report noted he found the allegations had no basis in truth as the student had denied being sexually assaulted and denied murdering someone.
The student's mother called and acknowledged "(the student) needed mental health treatment so they were acquiring her treatment," according to the report.
False accusers rarely face punishment for their allegations, and if they do, their punishment is minimal, usually probation or community service.
It is likely the accuser in this case didn't face charges because it does not appear she herself made any allegations to police, and lying to other students is not a crime. The case is actually similar to that of Jackie Coakley, who told students and staff at the University of Virginia and a reporter for Rolling Stone that she had been gang-raped as part of a fraternity initiation. Her claims turned out to be false, made in an attempt to get a male student's affections (it didn't work). Coakley was never charged for her false allegations even though they caused significant harm to the named fraternity as well as a former UVA Title IX staffer. The reason Coakley wasn't charged is because she didn't make her false allegations to police.
