I feel there is a lot wrong with her version of events. But if you look at the evidence photos of her taken shortly after her escape, her clothes are not that dirty, except for a spot on the front of her shirt, and a spot of blood on her right knee that was injured supposedly in the assault.

He would have done what he set out to do without wasting any time.
And he would have gotten her away from the crime scene as fast as he could. She said the man had long black hair. Murdoch had a crew cut at the time.
That is a pretty distinct feature. She also said the killer had a dog with spots on it. Murdoch had a Dalmatian. But a liar? And what about the affair with Nick? Yes, a lot of times it is.
