SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Louisiana State Police confirm that the woman who told police she had been attacked and set on fire was released from a Shreveport hospital on Wednesday.
Sharmeka Moffitt, who had been recovering at the Regional Burn Center at LSU Health, returned to her Winnsboro home.
But, says LSP spokesman Lt. Bill Davis, the case is still open and is likely to remain open until January, when the case file should be complete. State Police interviewed Moffitt on Thursday.
The burning case became of national interest back in October after Moffitt, 20, told authorities that three unidentified men wearing hoodies poured lighter fluid on her and used a lighter to set her ablaze. The flames left Moffitt with burns on more than 60% of her body.
Authorities confirmed then that racial slurs were spray-painted on Moffitt's car, along with the letters "KKK."
Winnsboro Police say she called 911 from Civitan Park in Winnsboro, where the incident took place.
Just as authorities began looking into whether race was a factor in the attack, evidence collected at the scene cast doubt about Moffitt's story. Winnsboro Police said authorities linked Moffitt's fingerprints to a lighter and a bottle of lighter fluid found at the scene.
Once State Police completes its investigation, the department will turn their evidence over to the Franklin Parish District Attorney's office, which would be the one to file charges in the case.
