Airman First Class Jane Neubauer was working as an informant for the Air Force's Office of Special Investigations in the summer of 2013 when she claims she was raped. According to an investigative report from Jacob Siegel at The Daily Beast, Neubauer was undercover at a party with restaurant workers who were possibly pushing drugs onto her base in Biloxi, Mississippi. After she reported being raped, she says OSI officers cut off communication with her. She is now being investigated for falsifying the investigation of her sexual assault.
Siegel details Neubauer's account of the night of July 26, 2013. At the party, she went to the bathroom when a man she didn't know burst open the door:
According to Neubauer, the man closed his hand around her throat and told her that he knew who she was and where she lived and that he knew she’d been working as an informant. He called her a snitch. Then, she says, he raped her.
Officially, the Air Force is not disputing Neubauer’s account. But "she is under investigation" for falsifying the report of her sexual assault, Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Allen Herritage says. Neubauer, for her part, says that since the rape OSI has placed her under constant investigation for unspecified crimes, and has repeatedly threatened that she could be court martialed.
After Neubauer reported the assault, the OSI agents who originally recruited her were sympathetic. For one day. After discussing the matter with her once, The Daily Beast reports, they cut off communication with her and stopped answering her calls. Shortly after, Neubauer "began to believe that OSI was preparing to accuse her of falsifying her rape."
