At the very beginning of the article, there is the following statement: "We have independently corroborated certain facts in the letter and believe the contents to be true."
I am not saying that Borderland Beat wasn't scammed in this case but there is also no evidence to the contrary. For those that make inference that Borderland Beat is simply part of that large media conspiracy, I beg to differ.
"Most of the information and content is derived from open source media, unconfirmed individual sources and personal view point of author. Most content is for information purposes only and is not from direct official sources and in most cases not confirmed. Some content is graphic and discrestion is advised."
This blog is interesting but the facts in articles are vetted less than in the National Inquirer. I've Googled this story and it's found on BB, the local blog already listed and the letter was posted on Craig's list. No where is there any information about it.
Obviously it didn't happen. That's fine, but what is scary is how many people want to believe it.
