Breana Harmon Talbott (Grayson County, Texas, Correctional Facility)

An 18-year-old white woman is now behind bars after confessing that her rape by 3 black men was a hoax. Last Wednesday, Breana Harmon Talbott burst into a church bleeding and wearing only a shirt, bra and underwear, and told everyone she had been raped by 3 black men.

“She told witnesses at the church she had been kidnapped and sexually assaulted in the woods behind the church,” the Denison County Police Department said in a statement on Wednesday. “There were also visible cuts and/or scratches on her body.”

After the report went public, it incited racist remarks on social media:

On Wednesday, the Denison police issued a statement saying it was all a hoax.

“The so-called victim in the case confessed to the hoax last evening (March 21) to a member of the investigative team working the case,” read a news release by the Denison Police Chief Jay Burch. “Talbott’s hoax was also insulting to our community and especially offensive to the African-American community due to her description of the so-called suspects in her hoax.”

“The department will file a criminal case against her for False Report to a Peace Officer, a Class B Misdemeanor” and will “seek restitution for the significant costs for conducting such a major investigation,” Burch’s statement said..
