Investigators say Teryn Applegate told her family and community she was diagnosed with a terminal brain cancer and only had months to live. The donations poured in and communities across southern Indiana held fundraisers for Applegate.

Applegate was originally arrested in Harrison County. She is now also wanted in Clark County on a theft charge for the same reason.
