Proof that the balloon boy ordeal was a hoax

The biggest story to hit the media recently has surrounded the Heene family in Fort Collins, Colorado. The world thought six-year-old Falcon Heene drifted away in his parent’s balloon, when actually he was hiding in their attic the whole time. Now today, the world is debating whether or not the whole story was intentionally set up by the Heenes as an elaborate publicity stunt.

Recent evidence has come to light that, if accurate, would prove it to indeed be a hoax. 

Today, the Gizmodo publication, a reliable source, spoke to a student from the Denver area who claimed to have been working with father Richard Heene from March until May 2009 on a reality show proposal. They would pitch their ideas to ABC. Now this student is willing to sell the details of this information—for a price.

The student has said, “when Mr. Heene is denying having any involvement with this being for a show — when the little kid, Falcon, says ‘Dad, you said to go hide in the attic, we’re doing this for the show’ — and then he’s adamantly denying that, that’s when I started cracking up because I have proof that that’s not true.”

The student also said the show they were developing surrounded scientific experiments and controversial pranks conducted by the Heene family…one of which is very similar to the balloon fiasco.

We’ll see how this pans out.
