From an archive of words:
confabulation: familiar talk; also, a plausible but imagined memory.

Confabulation can be a psychiatric term for brain damaged
patients giving detailed accounts lacking any factual basis.

I've heard 'eye witnesses' at a crime scene differ so much
police often have little to go on.
