It’s been confirmed; the rumor that Paul Walker faked his death is False. Well, that’s what you would believe if all you did was read the headlines recently.
Walker, late star of TV’s Fast and Furious, and his friend, Roger Rodas, died when their Porsche Carrera GT crashed and caught fire.
According to a website, Walker faked his death; and they posted photographic “evidence” showing exactly how the middle-aged star pulled it off.
The website, nodisinfo.com, started the rumor Friday and went viral almost immediately. While admittedly all of the site’s claims are fictional and made up by overactive imaginations, fans were not stopped from sharing the article and confirming it to their friends through Facebook shares and Tweets.
The site says: “They are all lying. Paul Walker didn’t die. Nor did Roger Rodas. They are both alive and well, and their relatives well know it.”
“It has already been established that the relatives of Paul Walker are involved in a cover-up, that is the cover-up of faking the actor’s death,” it goes on to say.
The website even tries to pull Walker’s girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, into the hoax saying that she had a hand in his “fake death.”
The entire claim is 100 percent false. The crash which killed Walker and his friend was captured by multiple cameras and seen first hand by many witnesses.
Walker, 40, was identified as the passenger in the car driven by Rodas, 38. The report goes on to say that Rodas died from “multiple traumatic injuries” while Walker perished of “combined effects of thermal and traumatic injuries.”
Walker, known in Hollywood for his humanitarian efforts, was remembered by Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, where she shared clips of some of Walkers visits to the set. Walker’s charity, Reach Out Worldwide, is the beneficiary of a $10,000 donation from JC Penney; and the talk show host encouraged viewers to donate to Walker’s charity through the end of the year.
Deputies with the L.S. County Sheriff’s office say that speed was a factor in the single car crash, but the accident itself is still being investigated. Video of Walker’s car on fire after the crash can be seen below.
