Here's the Boston Globe story on this phony survivor. I am filled with loathing at this person's action. It's not only that she made this all up but then she ruined her publisher's life [the woman may lose her home] because she was not satisfied with the way she handled her book.
The Boston Globe reporter with whom I spoke [his story will be published shortly] suggested she did it for the money.
Who knows? Who cares? Her apologies just don't cut it.
Though credit is due David Mehegan, the Gobe reporter. He smell a rat seven years ago, as his story from then demonstrates.
