A man who claimed he and his wife were victims of a hate crime now admit it was all a hoax.
Jenny and David Williams claimed someone spray painted the words “nigger lovers” on their garage door and set their truck and motorcycle on fire on Dec. 12.
They said insurance would not pay for the fire damage and they set up a Gofundme page to take in donations from the public. They also asked for money to pay for Christmas gifts for their children. “Please if you find it in your heart please donate what you can to help this family of 6 out.”
After Denton, Texas police opened an investigation into the alleged hate crime, David Williams admitted it was all a lie.
“David confessed to spray painting our garage door and starting the fire at our home,” Jenny Williams wrote on her Facebook page.
She promised to return all the donations.
Jenny Williams told police David is currently in a mental hospital.
But police say they will be waiting for him at the door when he is released. He will be charged with making a false police report and other charges.
