Sharmeka Moffitt, the woman who claimed to have been attacked and set on fire, is the subject of claims that she made up the incident.

Franklin Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Kevin Cobb told reporters Tuesday that there is evidence that the 20-year-old set herself ablaze soon after scrawling racist graffiti on her car. She claimed to have been attacked by three men in white hoodies.

Moffitt remains in critical condition in a Shreveport hospital.
