February 27, 1987: At Woodford County, Kentucky, a teenager is raped in her own home, around 11am, and at knifepoint. The victim gives a precise description of her attacker down to the tattoo on his left hand, and the car he drove. Futhermore, her purse has been emptied, the knife has been left behind, and when she was taken for an examination, semen was found, though no bruising, but thatís hardly surprising, she was probably afraid to resist with a knife at her throat. Especially as her attacker didnít exist. After a thorough investigation and a confession, she was charged.
