The Madison County Sheriff’s Department has determined after questioning a young woman who claimed she was attacked in a Godfrey Park that the story was made-up. The young woman claimed she was grabbed by a man as they passed each other on a trail at LaVista Park in Godfrey, ending up on the ground. But Sheriff’s Department Captain Mike Dixon tells the Big Z they have determined that to be untrue.

Dixon declined to comment on a motive for the alleged fabrication. He says the information has been turned over to the Madison County State's Attorney's Office for further review into whether charges will be filed against the woman.
