Megan Williams, Woman in Torture Case, Says She Lied What a quandary for someone!!! Here's the gist of the story - back in 2007 a 20 year old woman in W. Va. accused 6 people of holding her captive, chaining her, beating her, raping her and vaious other atrocities. The woman was "slow" according to her mother but she was bruised and beaten and she was acquainted with the family, having previously dated one of the men accused. She had been found in a shed located on the accused's property based upon a tip given to the sherrif's office. The 6 people were tried and found guilty based upon evidence presented and the fact that they had all confessed to the various crimes of which they were accused. The victim did not testify at the trial. Here's where the quandary - now the girl has come forward and said that she fabricated the entire story. Remember, the girl was never put on the stand, she never testified. The 6 were convincted upon physical evidence and each of them had confessed. How strange and how sad?
