Keene woman falsifies reports of assault, faked bruises on social media
KEENE — Police discovered that a Keene woman had lied about being assaulted, even going as far as applying makeup to appear as bruise marks on her face.
Emily Elliot, also known as Emily Glover, went to the police on Aug. 2 to report an assault that allegedly happened after a date.
Elliot claimed that after their date she did not let him in her home, so the man beat her face and body. She even published photos to her Facebook page of the alleged injuries.
Once an investigation began for this alleged assault, it was discovered that the man had an alibi for the time and date of the assault - he was at work, which others even attested to.
The investigating officer suspected the bruises were created using makeup.
Subsequently a doctor with the New Hampshire Medical Examiner’s Officer found the bruising inconsistent with the account given and what was shown on the Facebook posts.
Elliot was then arrested and charged with one count of false report to law enforcement.
Elliot was released on $5,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 4.
The case remains under investigation. Anyone who has further information is encouraged to call the Keene Police Department at 603-357-9820 to speak to Officer Lesley Ainsworth.
