Well this is a wild story from start to finish.
Fox News reports that an Ohio woman claims she lost her unborn baby when she was shot in the leg on July 8, during her gender reveal party. However, the only thing that’s been revealed is that she actually lied about being pregnant in the first place.
So why throw a gender reveal party when you are not even pregnant? Why carry on that charade? Police are still trying to figure that part out.
The Colerain Police Chief Mark Denney stated, “All we have at this point is speculation.”
Colerain police said the woman, Cheyanne Willis, 21, had lied about her pregnancy, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported. It’s unclear why she hosted the July 8 gender reveal party — a celebration where an expecting mother finds out the sex of her child.
Two men opened fire at the Cincinnati-area party, killing one woman, identified as Autum Garrett, 22, and injuring eight other people, including three children.
Willis told Fox 19 she lost her child, a boy, after being shot in the leg.
The police department released a statement Monday saying the false information has hampered its investigation into the deadly shooting.
The statement reads, “Hours and days have been wasted following leads known to be lies when they were provided to our officers. From the very beginning of this investigation, we have met significant resistance that is uncommon from victims of crime wanting a resolution.”
Police are still looking for the gunmen, who have not been identified. An unloaded gun was discovered in the front yard of the single-story home.
According to Fox, there has been an anonymous donor who came forward and offered a $10,000 reward to any person who may have information that leads to an arrest.
