Investigators close case after experts doubt woman’s abduction story

Flagler County sheriff’s investigators closed the case of a Palm Coast woman who claimed to be abducted and attacked by members of a voodoo group, officials said Friday.

Michelle Wood … said she was attacked when she refused to participate in drug use and devil worship in a ceremony related to the autumnal equinox.

But cult experts said Wood’s story didn’t line up with known voodoo practices. And sheriff’s investigators found no evidence of organized satanic worship in the county, according to Maj. David O’Brien, Criminal Investigation Unit supervisor.

In fact, O’Brien said his investigators couldn’t find “credible evidence” that a crime even occurred.

Plus, Wood has a history of making similar fraudulent claims to law enforcement, the Sheriff’s Office said.
