Ashley Del Valle - Jailed After Giving Herself A Black Eye, Falsely Claiming That She Had Been Kidnapped And Robbed

Fort Meyers, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Ashley Bernice Ortiz Del Valle, a 28-year-old Florida woman, has been jailed after she allegedly gave herself a black eye before falsely claiming that she had been kidnapped

According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched Wednesday after Del Valle told detectives that she had been kidnapped and assaulted before making a death-defying get-away.

Del Valle told detectives that she was stopped at a stop sign while driving to a nearby bank when a man and a woman jumped into her vehicle through the passenger side door and put a gun to her head.

Del Valle stated that the two suspects forced her to swallow two pills, punched her repeatedly in the face and robbed her of her cash and jewelry.  At some point during the supposed kidnapping, Del Valle bravely doused the suspects with pepper spray before fleeing the scene.

After telling her husband about the incident, Del Valle went to a local hospital where she was treated for her injuries.

During the investigation, however, detectives noted several inconsistencies with Del Valle's statements.  Forensic evidence taken from the vehicle and a bank deposit slip showing that Del Valle had already been to the bank at the time of the alleged assault, gave detectives an opportunity to challenge Del Valle's statements.

Detectives also found the jewelry Del Valle claimed had been stolen inside her vehicle.

Del Valle eventually admitted to making the entire story up, stating that she didn't expect her husband to report the incident. She also admitted to staging the crime scene and giving herself a black eye to make her story more believable.

Del Valle was booked into the Lee County Jail and charged with making a false report.
