Four months after a Rolling Stone article about an alleged gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity ignited fury across the country, police have come out to refute the facts of the story.

On Monday, Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo held a press conference to announce that his department have been unable to confirm the rape described in the article happened.

Moreover, they were never able to determine whether the fraternity brother who allegedly masterminded the assault - named by victim 'Jackie' as 'Haven Monahan' - ever existed.

Longo carefully shied away from outright calling Jackie's story false and said the investigation would only be suspended - and not fully closed - in case she decides to break her silence and cooperate or more witnesses come forward.

He said he could not conscionably close the investigation since the findings do not prove 'that something terrible didn't happen to Jackie'.

'All I can tell you is that there is no substantive basis to conclude that what was reported in that article happened,' he added.

Multiple sources are confirming to GotNews.com that Jackie Coakley is the girl who was the Rolling Stone reporter’s source.

“Jackie” asked not to be included in Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s story but Rubin included her anyways.

From Rolling Stone story.

Jackie had a strained relationship with her father (lol), in whose eyes she’d never felt good enough, and always responded by exceeding expectations – honor roll, swim team, first-chair violin – becoming the role model for her two younger brothers.

Jaqueline Coakley of Stafford VA appears to have two brothers, John and Matthew.
