“Man Who Allegedly Claimed to Be Missing Boy Timmothy Pitzen Is Charged,” The Wall Street Journal, April 6, 2019. Man wandering in streets claimed to be a boy who disappeared in 2011.
What possesses someone to claim to an FBI agent that you were a lost boy, profiled in a TV show? This guy had a history of false claims.
At least this time, before the news media went bonkers, the claim was debunked. Is that better governance by the media over this information than in the Jussie Smollett case, or was this story just not as interesting?
