Murfreesboro Police have made an arrest in a bizarre case involving a woman who allegedly filed fake disability paperwork with her employer. The paperwork supposedly suggested that she was disabled. The alleged fraud was uncovered when MTSU sent notification to the doctors office asking for them to verify the disability.
A police report shows that Tammy Yvonne Spellmeyer is accused of using St. Thomas hospital letterhead in the fictitious medical document that she allegedly submitted.
According to an incident report filed several weeks ago, the doctor whom she reportedly mentioned in the disability letter, told the university that the suspect had not been seen by a physician in their office since April, even though the paperwork for disability was just filed and recently dated.
According to the alleged fraudulent paperwork, the fake documents suggested that the 42-year old suspect could make her own work schedule and report to work when it was conducive to her.
The subject was charged with criminal simulation. Spellmeyer will be in court December 10th.
