(NEW YORK POST) – A New Jersey woman tricked a family into believing that she had brain cancer — while she crashed at their home for more than a month, according to police and a new report.
Kiley White, of Galloway, preyed on the kindness of the Evans family in Egg Harbor Township for over a month, until she was busted last week, Linda Evans told local station NBC 10.
“All night long, she would be moaning and groaning and I would be massaging her legs,” she said. “Every day was just like she has one more day to live.”
White, 26, was on her way back to the Evans home on July 12 when she was finally taken into custody and charged with theft by deception and harassment, local police said.
She met the Evanses through a mutual friend in early June, the station reported. When White claimed she had nowhere to stay due to a traumatic family history, the couple took her in.
The family contacted police after their relatives became suspicious and discovered White was using similar tactics in the Pittsburgh area, according to the report.
Egg Harbor police confirmed that White pulled a similar act on other occasions in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, but had never been charged with a crime. On each occasion, she received services and goods from her scam victims, cops said.
Police also determined that White pretended to be other people as well, including her own hospice nurse.
“She needs help,” Evans told the station. “She needs serious help.”
