Also, it would be hard to hide a twin pregnancy. My friend had twins and she was huge. Her abs never went back to normal, and she is a thin, fit, active woman. An exam would have provided some clues.<quoted text>
Oh, I totally get that as well. But my friend and the other roommates -- and my memory is kind of fuzzy on this, it was 10+ years ago -- believed her and felt that her mental problems pretty much started around that time when she allegedly gave birth.
Because I didn't believe it at first, either, but my friend said that she and the other two roommates said the story just made everything else in this girl's life seem to make sense.
Anyway, I am very surprised that the authorities were so disinterested in checking out her story.
