Two Women Arrested For Pretending Their Child Had Died To Collect Money

Two women have been charged by police after making hundreds of dollars pretending they were collecting for a dead baby’s funeral fund.

In a horrific scam, the women printed a picture of a child from the internet and made a sign on which they put the photograph along with the words ‘funeral donations’ and the baby’s supposed dates of birth and death.

They were caught after police in Modesto, California, stopped them collecting money with the sign at a roadside. When they investigated who the child was with the local coroner, they found no one of that name had died in the area.

The women, Chasity Doll and Tiffany Lyon, were spotted by authorities by a busy junction outside the Vintage Faire mall in the area on Saturday.

Officers said they were darting in and out of traffic with their home made sign, claiming they were collecting for the funeral of baby Justin Michael Farrell.

They reportedly said the child had died of a heart condition in Modesto while they were on vacation.

After he girls ignored requests by police for them to stay on the side walk, they were questioned about the child.
