Seattle Police: “Pregnant” Occupier Jennifer Fox Tried to Lure Children From Their Mother
On Monday it was reported that a 20 year-old woman who decided to join violent protests last week and was pepper sprayed by Seattle Police and lost her baby. The young woman said her encounter with the police at the protest caused her to miscarriage. The story made international headlines.
Here’s video of the accuser Jennifer Fox after she scuffled with police and was pepper sprayed.
Here’s Jennifer Fox being carried from the violent protests she joined in last week.
A woman who gave her name as Jennifer and said she was two months pregnant is rushed to an ambulance after being hit with pepper spray at an Occupy Seattle protest on Tuesday, November 15, 2011 at Westlake Park. Protesters gathered in the intersection of 5th Avenue and Pine Street after marching from their camp at Seattle Central Community College in support of Occupy Wall Street. Many refused to move from the intersection after being ordered by police. Police then began spraying into the gathered crowd hitting dozens of people. An 84 year-old activist was also hit with spray.

Now there’s more…
Not only is Jennifer Fox a “compulsive liar” and “drama queen,” she’s used the same line – that she was three months pregnant – during an arrest back in August. She also tried to lure some young children from their mother back in the summer.
My Northwest reported:
Occupy Seattle protestor Jennifer Fox has publicly levied a serious claim against the Seattle Police Department; that two officers are responsible for the death of her unborn child. But now, as her claim is called into question and new information about the 19-year-old surfaces, she may come out of the ordeal being perceived as much more than a troubled teen desperate for attention.
97.3 KIRO FM has learned that Fox was once suspected of trying to lure two young children away from their mother. In a police report dated August 3, 2011, a mother stated a young woman had approached her daughters at Seattle’s Pritchard Beach Park during a swimming lesson. Police sources confirm that woman was Fox.
“(The mother) stated she observed (Fox) approach her children as they made their way from the lake to her car,” read the report. “(The mother) stated she could tell that (Fox) was asking the children questions by the way they were acting.”
When the mother confronted Fox, Fox stated she was a swimming coach in Bellevue and was offering the children lessons.
“Fox stated she had just returned from Greece where she had won every event she had entered in a swim meet,” according to the report. The girls told their mother Fox had asked them to leave with her, and had offered them a ride if they came to Bellevue to swim with her.
Lifeguards at the facility decided to call police, who questioned Fox upon arrival.
“(Fox) stated she had been trained as a swimming coach while on the ‘Special Olympics team.’ (Fox) stated she had 48 gold medals.”
Officers determined Fox “may be suffering from a mental illness or drug addiction,” and allowed her to leave, with the condition that she not return to the park. But, the incident adds to the growing suspicion that Fox was not pregnant during the clash with Seattle police last week that she said resulted in a miscarriage.
As 97.3 KIRO FM first reported Tuesday, Fox had told police she was three months pregnant in September when facing arrest, which would make it impossible for her to have been three months pregnant last week, as she claimed.
On Sept. 22, 2011, Seattle police responded to a vacant building located in 1250 Denny Way where a security officer reported six squatters. One of those people, according to police sources, was Fox.
According to the police report, Fox told an officer she was three months pregnant and began crying when arrested.
“(Fox) began holding her stomach and was screaming when she was arrested,” read the report. (Fox) was treated at the scene and transported to HMC.”
Fox’s former foster parents, Mike and Lark Stebbins, told 97.3 KIRO FM’s Dori Monson Show Wednesday that she has a history of telling damaging lies.
“Jennifer has a tendency to exaggerate,” Lark said. “Jennifer doesn’t understand the ramifications of allegations towards people, and that’s my concern with this possible lawsuit against the Seattle Police Department.”
Earlier this week Fox declined to provide medical records supporting her claim that she had a miscarriage five days after being hit.
