imageRichmond, Ind. ? A Wayne County mom is accused of an elaborate fake funeral for her teenage daughter.

Tuesday night, family and friends gathered at a Richmond, Indiana church to mourn the death of the girl who had supposedly been murdered by her father out of state. However, during the funeral those who attended found out the girl was actually alive and her mother had apparently made the whole thing up.

The woman, Angie Boyd, claimed her daughter had been raped and killed by her father. The woman’s brother though, didn’t believe her story and called her out during the service.

“It was the toughest thing I have ever had to do get up and admit that my sister’s a fraud and that she’s lying to these people and taking advantage of them. How can you do that?” said Brian LaMaster.

Angie had apparently gone to a lot of trouble for the “pretend” funeral, evening to the point of getting an urn, a special blanket and a collection box for donations. Her brother suspects she wanted the money to support a drug habit.

Inside the urn were ashes of Angie’s late mother, who passed away several years ago.

Angie left the service and hasn’t been heard from since. No charges have been filed against her however, police say they would like to speak with her about the incident.
