    Boston Bombing: Woman 'Fakes Injury For Payout' Audrea Gause was given $500,000 by Boston Marathon

    Police in Massachusetts said Audrea Gause, 26, has been charged with larceny after submitting a claim to the victims' fund last month saying she had been treated for a traumatic brain injury.

    Attorney General Martha Coakley said Gause, from Troy, NY, received a cheque for $480,000 (£314,000) from the fund, which was created to help victims of the April 15 attacks that killed three people and wounded more than 260.

    Ms Coakley said the claim alleged that Gause sustained a brain injury from the bombing and experienced long-term memory loss, impaired speech, and loss of some motor function that would require future surgery.

    Authorities got a tip last week that Gause may not have been in Boston on the day of the marathon, and the hospitals later said they did not treat her, Ms Coakley said.

    "There is no evidence that Ms Gause was an actual victim of the bombing," she said at a news conference.

    *sigh* I don't know which is worse...

    Someone falsely claiming they were injured in such a horrible tragedy, or someone who sets up fundraisers for victims only to keep all the money to themselves rather than giving it to victims and their families as claimed.

    Such awful, awful people...
