On the afternoon of March 22, 2018, a young woman arrived at a remote farmhouse in Dunn County, Wisconsin. She had dried blood around her mouth and on her arms and hands. Her clothes were covered in mud, her trousers torn, and her feet were bare. She rang the doorbell rapidly, several times. When 89-year-old dairy farmer Don Sipple answered, she said she needed to be taken to hospital. On seeing the state she was in, the elderly man brought the stranger inside and called 911.

The woman claimed she had been attacked, but she couldn’t remember anything – not even her name.

The concerned farmer had no idea that the young woman sitting in his home was a persistent liar and if the jury got it right, a calculated killer.
