This is the second person who faked his death. Both had many persons and a lot of money spent for their search. How can they pay restitution if they're in jail? Hope not with counterfeit money! However, just as O.J. Simpson, any money accumulated by them whenever should be used for repaying the search parties. Just hope the sentence for both of these men is harsh enough to make others think twice before trying it.

Once they discovered she'd left the Carolinas, I'm guessing they tracked pings to her cell phone as the primary lead to narrowing where she was at. They probably figured if they found her, they'd find him, and they were right. Looks like love did him in.

My 7th-grader can write better than this.

"She said that was the first she knew that he was alive," Thompson said. "She says they wouldn't let her leave. We're finding other stories that contradict that, that she had left."

THEY wouldn't let her leave? Who's THEY? I presume the dude and his buddy in Terre Haute? She had left ... WHERE? Terre Haute?

Honestly, where do the find your average AP reporter these days?

"Really don't want IT COME out ..."

Should be "Really don't want it (to) come out ..."

And if I'm the Marshals, I don't tell anybody how we found him. That only serves to provide current/future criminals with information they can use to elude authorities.

And his buddy in Terre Haute ain't as innocent as they make it sound -- how does he sit around a house that has bags of counterfeit money and not know about it?

How should he pay restitution back? With the counterfeit money he made?

Very similar story as the Greenfield postman last year, only he had real money with him. All he got out of the hoax was home detention. Let's see what happens to this dude.

I agree but you can't get blood from a turnip. He only has $57,000 and that is counterfeit.

Many cop shows are NOT fiction. They are more like documentaries. The *good* cop shows that ARE fiction are often designed based on realistic situations, and tactics.

Apparently you are no Einstein either.

Most of what you describe as *Terrible Writing* has quotes around it. That means the reporter did not write it but is quoting someone, verbatim.

Such a talented literary critic such as yourself should know that.
