One woman ruined two lives with her lies.
The Logan Police Department said in a news release that Michael Fife of Logan died on April 27 at the McKay-Dee Hospital, where he was being treated for injuries sustained in a revenge attack.
Fife was accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old aboard a Cache Valley Transit District bus in Logan at around 3 p.m. on April 23, according to police.
Shortly after the alleged incident on the bus, the 16-year-old girl called her 17-year-old brother and claimed Fife had sexually assaulted her.
Minutes later, as Fife got off the bus, he was met by the 17-year-old brother of the alleged victim. The teenager struck Fife, according to police. Fife fell and suffered head injuries when he hit the sidewalk.
…When detectives reviewed surveillance footage of the alleged sexual assault, they said that “the video showed Mr. Fife walking past the girl, but no sexual assault occurred.”
So, this girl calls her brother and lies about a man sexually assaulting her. He runs down there, attacks the guy and now an innocent man is dead and the brother will be, I assume, facing manslaughter charges. Happily, she did also call the police and make a false charge, so hopefully, she can get the jail time she deserves. …And how much time does she deserve for falsely claiming that she was sexually assaulted? For getting a man KILLED? The tendency in these cases with women is ALWAYS to give a slap on the wrist. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen this time.
