A Nasty Hoax in the Heartland

Read this whole thing.

A little girl named Kodee writes a series of emotional letters, published in a college newspaper in Illinois over a two-year period. She writes about her Dad in Iraq, her feelings about George Bush, and even her dad’s death. Too bad Kodee, her dad, his death, his memorial service, the letters, and the phone interviews were all fakes.

Update: Also read the Tribune’s in-depth piece, which mesablue pointed out in comments. It’s even weirder than the first story.
