Police Investigation Reports
Officers believe that Anderson lied after investigating the scene where it had supposedly taken place and finding nothing at all. Injuries on the girl were not consistent with those that would have been caused in a car crash, authorities say.
Following an investigation, officers obtained a warrant for Anderson’s arrest. She was apprehended in Bunkie, Louisiana on Tuesday.
