Attention Internet: Paul Walker 'Death Photo' Is a Hoax

By December 1, 2013

Follow me on:

Hoax photo purports to show Paul Walker's facial injuriesIf you see a graphic image purporting to show facial injuries sustained by Paul Walker in his fatal car crash on Saturday, don't share it. It isn't a postmortem photo of Paul Walker. The pic actually dates from 2011 and shows the face of an American charity worker seriously injured in a construction mishap two years ago in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

As noted previously, despite conflicting reports on the Internet, it has been confirmed by Paul Walker's representatives that the Fast & Furious actor died in a fiery car crash Saturday afternoon.

“As noted previously, despite conflicting reports on the Internet, it has been confirmed by Paul Walker’s representatives that the Fast & Furious actor died in a fiery car crash Saturday afternoon.”

reading comprehension, you have none. i’m quite sure his body would have suffered severe burns from that crash. that photo that is posted there has none.

1: how would people know it’s the same injuries Paul walker received when no one knows what injuries he received and
2: I’m pretty sure that if the coroner has to wait for his dental records to be able to say its him I’m pretty sure there would be NO photos like this his car exploded people he was to badly burnt for even his family to be able to say it was him . To the people who put this photo out there shame on you.

R.I.P Paul Walker, i just can’t believe he died but then again, i think it’s strange how he dies a day after his hoax death, i just can’t believe he is dead, probably because i don’t want to think he’s dead, but if he really is and that body wasn’t some random person’s body then R.I.P Paul Walker, you will never be forgotten, you will never be able to be replaced in fast and furious. I still can’t believe that he is dead though, i just can’t, i just want him to appear somewhere and surprise everyone

I can’t believe how stupid people are. A bunch of lemmings. It is FACT that the Porsche had exploded shortly after impact and two unidentifiable bodies had been pulled from the wreckage. So, how would Paul Walker be unburned and otherwise unscathed minus his face? Gee whiz, does anyone use their brain much these days?!

Ironically, a coworker told me he saw a picture of Paul Walker and mentioned about his face split, so I can rest knowing that my coworker is also an idiot. I asked him where he saw it as in a gore site or where ever. No answer. I mentioned that the body and face must had been near charcoal. No answer. Oh, well, this coworker feeds me lines of bullcrap about ghosts and fireballs, so I figured he was just feeding me a line as per usual. What a dunce and that goes for the maker of this hoax as well! It’s a sad state when almost everyone falls in line with the rest of the lemmings and perpetuates these hoaxes even more. There really is no hope for mankind because the dummies are the vast majority.

Anywho, thanks Mr Emery for setting the record straight even though there are still dummies like Serena and Philip (although I sense that they are the same dummy – attention seeking troll who has no life).

(22) Smokey says:

If a person dies in a car crash where the vehicle was goinh in excess of 80 mph and there is an ensuing fire as a result of the crash, I can guarantee you that his facial injuries will be much more severe than that, along with butns to the face. As a veteran firefighter/paramedic I can say this with certainty.

Given the fact that the two passengers were burned so badly dental records will have to be used to identify them there is no way this could be either of the men.

(38) siva says:

may God bless him,as in these couple of days i felt so sad as i am not directly connected to him but i felt so sob inside whereby i can’t control .Even though i don’t know much about him, and i didn’t even a great fan of him , i only knw him just recently after the incident.For me everyone will die one day, but what a tragic for him to die like this which is so hurtful before he exhale his last breath.I hope he will rest in peace, and i hope that one day i can meet him in heaven…..may this is the last birth for him in this earth as i am Indian and we do believe in reincarnartion after death..He had done so many good thing to ths community ,due to that i am pretty sure that he will be sent to heaven….i will joint him maybe who know in 10years from now or 20 or maybe 30 or more we won’t know when we will leave this world ,so before we leave this world we should do as good things as possible ….
