This sounds like something out of a Lifetime movie.
Texas Woman Posed As Doctor To Trick Friend Into Lesbian Relationship
A Texas woman has been arrested on charges that she impersonated a doctor in a bizarre scheme to trick a friend into engaging in a lesbian love affair and becoming her life partner.
According to Lufkin News:
Angela Buchanan, 30, of Lufkin, Texas, has been charged with online impersonation, a Class A misdemeanor. The 51-year-old victim suffered from breast cancer. The woman pretended to be a doctor, even using the Yahoo! Messenger handle “Doc.”
She suggested they begin a relationship, boasting about the health benefits of a healthy romantic life, which was sure to increase hormone production.
The “Doc” went over all the woman’s medical test results, and accompanied the woman when she underwent reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy. In August, they committed their lives to each other in a civil marriage ceremony.
It wasn’t until the victim’s daughter started investigating her partner that she found out she had been conned. Angela Buchanan was arrested for a Class A misdemeanor charge and stands to pay a $4,000 (€3,000) fine and spend a year in jail.
This should be a book. Fifty Shades of Gay. Or a tv show on ABC, Desperate Lesbian. Or a reality show, Keeping Up With The Cancer Lies.
But seriously, the victim here is clearly mentally disabled, and this woman was taking advantage of that fact. This is just nuts!
