According to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a domestic altercation Sunday. In a sworn, recorded statement, Lacayo stated her live-in boyfriend had battered her and prevented her by force or intimidation from leaving the residence to seek help.

“Before deputies left the residence to look for the male, Lacayo broke down crying, and stated that she had made the entire store up because she was angry at the boyfriend,” Jackson County Sheriff Louis Roberts III said.

Lacayo was booked in the Jackson County Correctional Facility.
