Blog / Thursday, April 26th, 2018

In an assessment conducted by professionals, there was not enough evidence or facts to conclude that Dylan Farrow was sexually assaulted by Woody Allen. The investigative team considered different hypothesis
for this case, and in their expert opinion and thorough investigation there were several factors that led
them to the conclusion the Dylan O’Sullivan Farrow was not sexually assaulted. First, there were important
inconsistencies in Dylan’s statements in the videotape and in her statements. Her recalling of the story
was described as fantasy-like and she manifested loose associations in her thinking. It was also noted
that Dylan appeared to struggle with how to tell about the touching. She was described as confused
about what to relate to the interviewers. Additionally, she told the story in a manner that was overly
thoughtful and controlling. There was no spontaneity in her statements, and a rehearsed quality was
suggested in how she spoke. She repeatedly elaborated on interconnected themes like how upset she
was by the loss of her father and Soon-Y, and how she was afraid she would be taken from her mother’s
care. Lastly, her description of the details surrounding the alleged events were unusual and inconsistent.
Dylan was described as being very attuned to her mother’s pain and reinforcing a negative view of her
Father, Woody Allen, and this was a main theme in the assessment.
