Woman Who Claimed to be Raped and Kidnapped Recants StorySalem-News.com
(HILLSBORO, Ore.) - Today Sheriff's detectives re-interviewed the victim in Tuesday's Kidnapping/Rape case that allegedly occurred in the community of Cedar Hills. They confronted Twenty-seven-year-old Amada Gonzalez-Herrera (from Beaverton) with facts that contradicted her claims of being kidnapped and raped. She previously claimed that a man got in her car while she was at a stop sign and subsequently raped and robbed her.
Detectives have been diligently working on the case since Mrs. Gonzalez-Herrera reported the alleged crime.
Over the last two days they have been gathering evidence that was slowly pointing to a false claim by Mrs. Gonzalez-Herrera. The victim's car was seized and taken to the Sheriff's Office for processing. Members of the Forensics Sciences Section searched that car and found evidence that the rape had not occurred in the car as the victim had claimed. She also claimed that the suspect forced her to take out $300 from an ATM, they found the stolen money in the glove box.
Once confronted with the contradicting evidence Mrs. Gonzalez-Herrera admitted that she may have imagined the events and it was all in her head. Mrs. Gonzalez-Herrera has voluntarily agreed to a mental evaluation and is currently at an area hospital.
No charges have been filed against Mrs. Gonzalez-Herrera at this time. The District Attorney's Office will receive all the reports and make a decision if she will be charged for filing a false police report.
