Video: Woman Charged with Making False Report in Manhunt for Illinois Cop Killers

VIDEO: Woman’s False Report Diverted Illinois Cop Killer Manhunt

A 30-year-old Illinois woman was charged with filing a false police report after she lied about spotting the suspects in the Fox Lake murder of Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, authorities said.

Kristin Kiefer's claim prompted a massive five-hour search in the communities of Volo and Lakemoor overnight, ABC 7 reports.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office said Kiefer told officers she pulled over at Rt. 12 and Rt. 120 in Volo for car trouble. She alleged that two men, one white and one black, in a cornfield approached her and tried to steal her car. She said they ran away.

Nearly 100 state and local law enforcement authorities searched the area along with 11 canine and three air units from around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday until around 2:30 a.m. Thursday. Nothing was found.

Authorities said Kiefer later admitted to lying, because she wanted attention from the family that she nannies for. Kiefer was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct for falsifying a police report. One of those charges is a felony.

She wanted attention? Our future is so bright.

I think that she is a lying piece of trash. She did it to throw authorities off so that the killers could get more distance. It will probably turn out that she knows at least one of the killers and did this to help them. Her picture kind of reflects her intelligence.
