The story of the adventure-chasing Heene family from Fort Collins, Colorado, keeps taking different turns.  The Heene family was on the ABC show “Wife Swap” in March, and father Richard Heene said he heard aliens speak to him when he passed out in a fast-food restaurant.  He also said he was going to build a flying saucer and send it into a tornado–which resembles the object that his son, Falcon, was allegedly flying in last Thursday.  Falcon was safe in the family home and not in the flying object, but the family may be in legal trouble, as authorities are now saying that the entire episode was a hoax.
