I don't believe them, either. Invisible people, though highly useful in books, have never been proven to exist. When you find proof of such "invisible people", please contact me at paranoia@us.gov .

Comment: Hi,
I rec'd this email and would like to confirm whether the stories are true
or false? Additionally, are there really other such stories milling around
that the public should or should not know about regarding American Heros?
Thanks..Tony

We already do that. But not everyone e-mails us through our "Send Comments" link.

Snopes, Barbara and all of us here at this website can neither confirm or deny that. Further, we also have no recollection of that event - whatever it is - which just proves we are being honest [Razz]

Comment: Just to let you know that this story is making the rounds again.
I thought I had remembered it when I read it in an e-mail I received today
6/6/03 so I checked your site. Sure enough it's been around for quite some
time and it's making a comeback.

sent e-mail, developed confidence by saying that they had mutual friend,

I think a CIA agent confused snopes with the CIA's website.

Because there's nothing worse than an inaccurate stalker. They hide in the bushes on the wrong street, buy you wedding dresses that are three sizes too big, misspell your name on the creepy letters...

[lol] And then they end up following other people home!

It's the Email Plague. You get it, then you pass it along, soon everyone has it. Even people who don't want it. No, it's never safe to forward. Yes, I've heard it all before...

Comment: Is this a hoax?

This guy was convicted on a sex offense of an 11 yr. old girl in Denton
County. He didn't show up for the punishment phase (WHY WAS HE OUT OF
JAIL!!!) JUST in case you see him--call police =} He could be anywhere.

Man Takes Flight Shortly Before Conviction For Sex Offense
quote:


FORT WORTH, Texas, 5:40 p.m. CDT August 15, 2003 - The Denton County Sheriff's Office is asking for help in the search for William Pierce. Pierce was convicted on Tuesday on two counts of sexual assault against a child.

Pierce showed up for court on Monday but not on Tuesday, the same day he was convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for a sex offense against an 11-year-old girl. He now is considered a dangerous fugitive.
