As well, a woman was buried on a ski run at Copper Mountain in 1994 by an avalanche, but she was rescued.

Police say rape story was phoney

ASPEN, Colo. — A dental hygienist in Aspen who alleged she was raped has instead been charged with possession of cocaine. She was bleeding from her vagina not because of a rape, say prosecutors, but because she had stowed three bindles of cocaine there.

The woman, who is 49, had gone to the Aspen Valley Hospital because of her vaginal bleeding. The doctor who removed the plastic baggie containing the cocaine from her vagina said the woman told her several stories. The first story was the story that police say was closest to the truth. She stowed the cocaine up her crotch when the car she was in was stopped by police.

The rape story fell apart at several turns, including the part where she says her rapist abducted her and forced her to go get cash from a bank cash machine. The movie sequence taken at the ATM showed her alone and, it would seem, without a sense of fright.
