The Detroit woman who claims to have infected over 500 men with HIV has now admitted her claims were a hoax designed to raise awareness of HIV. Arrested by Detroit police at the University she attends, she was taken to the Detroit Health Department for an HIV test. While her results are confidential, the woman assures us that she is HIV negative; Detroit Police have confirmed her story and have released her.
During an 11-minute online video, a woman thought to be from Detroit admits to intentionally infecting more than 500 people with HIV. The woman, who has yet to be identified, says in the video that she has been "upset" about having to suffer since her diagnosis in the late 1990's. She says she has set out to "destroy the world". While the woman has yet to be positively identified, tips to the Detroit Police Department suggest she is a Detroit resident. If so, and her claims are proven true she could face some real jail time; knowingly infecting someone with HIV is a felony in Michigan.
