Woman Arrested for Having Sex with Teen Boys Was Also Faking Having Cancer (VIDEO)

Say What!? 6

We've got a lot of crazy to cover here, so I'm just going to dive right in. A 35-year-old Arizona woman named Jennifer Dempsey has been accused of having sex with two teen boys, ages 14 and 16. She reportedly faked being a 16-year-old girl on Facebook in order to lure the boys to the home she shared with her husband and get them in the sack. She told them it was her "aunt's" home. Police think she may have many more young victims too. So that's bad enough ... but let's get into the really cray cray stuff.

Jennifer also apparently told each of the teen boys she was pregnant -- and even went so far as to meet with one of the boy's parents to discuss the pregnancy. So, how a 35-year-old woman passes for a 16-year-old is beyond me, especially when she's doing it in person. I mean, look at her mugshot. She don't look no 16 to me! Not even 26. The parents didn't think so either and called police. Score: Parents.

Jennifer reportedly admitted having sex with the 16-year-old -- but denied having it with the 14-year-old. Her excuse? Here comes some more cray. She said she was too sick with chemotherapy treatments to have sex with the boy -- because, you see, Jennifer had also been battling cancer for the past five years. 

Friends, neighbors and family say they were all under the impression that Jennifer was fighting cancer. She'd shaved her head, bought wigs, and even had a fake chemo port taped to her chest. Said a neighbor:

It was my belief that she was very, very ill. She wore a tube all the time.

But cops discovered her cancer was reportedly fake -- as well as her pregnancies. Since Jennifer wasn't trying to get money out of anyone, authorities are baffled. But faking cancer for sympathy and attention isn't that uncommon. People who fake illnesses are usually up to no good in other parts of their lives too -- it provides a convenient way to avoid hard questioning and puts people in a sympathetic mindset which the faker uses to their advantage.

This is one seriously disturbed woman. Can't imagine what her husband thinks about all of this.

Why do you think she would fake pregnancies and cancer?

She looks 45, if she's a day. Those poor, stupid, horny boys. This is a mixed bag of crazy. I hope she gets help and is punished, hopefully to keep her from doing something destructive like this in the future.

Yuck. So she met with one of the parents, I would LOVE to see those parents. I can imagine what they look like cause no decently raised 14 and 16 yr old would go anywhere near that chick even if she claims she is 16. Pretty sure these boys are not being watched very closely.

Had a lady fake cancer here....she was manager of a gas station Im close to and totally scammed lots of people. We found out only after she ripped me off for $70 on my card one day and I turned her in...turns out she'd been skimming the store as well as stealing lottery tickets, double charging people cards, had a can out asking for donations for her "cancer" and all.....nothing but pot and pill heads is all they were. A bunch of no good druggies. Her, her husband and her grown children were doing it. Grrr, gets my goat! This is one case I'd be happy to see her REALLY get cancer.
