Police: Mom altered GoFundMe page photo to say son abused

MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman fighting for custody of her 3-year-old son is accused of altering a photo of him for a GoFundMe page to make it look like he was abused.

WMUR-TV reports the GoFundMe page seeking money for a lawyer went live shortly after Taylier Tibbetts told police in November that her son had been abused by his father. The page included photo of her son showing a bruise on his ribs. GoFundMe says the page raised a total of $10. It has since been removed.

The 20-year-old Tibbetts is charged with making a false report. The father hasn’t been charged with a crime.

Tibbetts says she didn’t lie to police. She had no comment when asked if she digitally edited any photos.

She’s due in court next month.
