The police report on Sorey, as provided by The Smoking Gun, explains the wild series of events that led to Sorey’s neighbor being killed:
The defendant later moved out of her home and allowed a friend to stay there. On 5/10/19 at 2200 hours, a neighbor arrived at the defendants apartment to confront her and her husband over money issues and began beating on the front door. The defendant then told the friend that the person knocking at the door sounded like the male that sexually battered her. The friend exited the home to attempt to take a photograph of the male subject to give to the police and the male attacked the friend. Ultimately, the friend killed the neighbor in self defense during the confrontation. Detectives re-interviewed the defendant and she admitted she fabricated the entire report of sexual battery and it never happened.
