Woman's False Rape Claim Led To Man's Death

Shocking Florida police report details tragic chain of events

MAY 19--The false report of a brutal sexual assault set off a bizarre chain of events that ended last week with the self-defense killing of a Florida man, according to police.

The fatal set of circumstances began when Brittany Sorey, a 30-year-old mother of five, last month contacted police to report that she had been sexually assaulted in her apartment in Largo, a town outside Tampa.

Sorey, pictured at right, alleged that a Hispanic man forced his way into her residence and “battered her and vaginally penetrated her with a broken broom handle and a box cutter.” She repeated this claim when later re-interviewed by detectives.

At the time of the purported attack, Sorey and her husband Gerald, 25, were living in the Largo home and were behind on the rent (which eventually precipitated an eviction action). According to her Facebook page, Sorey is the mother of six children.

In late-March, Sorey’s husband was arrested for allegedly shoving her to the ground during an argument in their apartment. The dispute, cops reported, was “due to infidelity allegations.” During the altercation, Gerald allegedly menaced his wife with a Glock handgun (which was later seized by police).

At the time of the March 24 incident, police noted, Sorey was six weeks pregnant. Gerald was busted for aggravated assault on a pregnant victim, a felony that was later dropped after Sorey told prosecutors she did not want the felony case pursued.

After making the sexual assault claim in April, Sorey and her husband moved out of the Largo apartment, but allowed a male friend to stay there. In an April 20 Facebook post, Sorey informed followers that she was raising money for the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence. That post, however, was deleted today from Sorey’s page shortly after a TSG reporter sent her a text message and left a voicemail on her cell phone.

As detailed in a court filing, Sorey’s friend was in the Largo residence on May 10 when a male neighbor showed up at the apartment to “confront” Sorey and her husband “over money issues.” The neighbor, a detective reported, “began beating on the front door,” apparently unaware that the couple had moved out.

With the neighbor banging on the front door, Sorey’s friend called her to report the disturbance. Sorey responded by telling her male friend that “the person knocking at the door sounded like the male that sexually battered her,” cops noted.

Sorey’s friend then exited the apartment and attempted to “take a photograph of the male subject to give to police.” At that point, the neighbor attacked Sorey’s friend, cops say. During the ensuing confrontation, “the friend killed the neighbor in self defense,” according to court records.

The complaint does not identify the men involved in the fight, or how the neighbor died. EMS dispatch audio indicates that an ambulance was sent to the Largo home around 10:23 PM to handle a trauma call.

It was only after the neighbor’s death that Sorey admitted to police that she “fabricated the entire report of sexual battery and that it never happened.”

Sorey was arrested Friday afternoon on a single misdemeanor count of falsely reporting a crime. Seen in the mug shot at left, she was released from the county jail late last night after posting $150 bond.

Sorey did not respond to TSG messages seeking comment about her case. In a Facebook profile, Sorey describes herself as “Wife, mother, step mother, medical student. MS and Lupus warrior.” She reports having attended St. Petersburg College and Ultimate Medical Academy, which offers training for entry-level health care jobs.

In December, Sorey sought contributions via Facebook so that she could purchase a van capable of carrying up to eight passengers. Noting that she was about to start a new job, Sorey wrote that she “shared custody with my ex husband” and, due to her lack of a vehicle, was missing “some of my time and weekends or vacations with them” since, “I live hour and a half away from my kids.” While Sorey sought to raise $6500, she extracted no contributions from her online friends.

Psychos are walking around all over since the Dems closed all the mental hospitals years ago. I heard it was because they could not be air conditioned and there was a new medication that didn't work in hot weather hence the need for working AC. So there we are. If a med doesn't work in hot weather, it doesn't work in my opinion. But supposedly it has fewer bad effects than drugs that do work in hot weather. We get the fallout of that.

Screen, screen, screen and remove them quick when things go south. I’m sure we’ve all had a tenant that could have led to this if we were not on top of things. I can think of one that came with the building and one I gave a chance to. Another reminder not to give chances. Stay safe!

This is why you can't get caught up with other people's BS. I stay far away from tenants and they only deal with me when they don't pay or if something needs fixing. Professional distance wasn't available to the neighbor but even on a personal level, I stay away from getting caught up in other people's problems and I find myself keeping things "on the surface" even in personal relationships until I really get to know and be comfortable with someone. For me that takes a very long time.

Yes, screen hard, give no chances and stay on top of stuff.

What murder, Tony? Supposedly, there was a justifiable homicide in self-defense. No murder here.

Just more tenant drama.

Something to screen away from. The more complicated their stories are, the more likely that they come burdened with a lot of drama. Which is a very good reason to not accept all their stories and excuses. It foreshadows some bad, but dramatic, behavior.
