Well, apparently we have a crazy on our hands...or at least a screw loose.
So, instead of explaining the story once an hour for two days I decided to write it in a blog post so I can just direct folks here.
Last night, ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY NO LESS, I received a random e-mail from some person saying our twitter "friend" @fmn1986 was not truthful. I don't know the person who e-mailed me, they got my e-mail from this blog and e-mailed me specifically because they noticed we (meaning me and FMN) were making plans to meet. I was told she was a young college student in Michigan and certainly not the NYC assistant district attorney she claimed to be. I was told she lives in Michigan, not NYC, and she is not married.
After consultation with some members of our twitter family, I spoke (gchatted) with FMN. She admitted the e-mail was true and apologized profusely. I was told by her that she started this story a few years ago as an escape from a bad time and it basically snowballed on her. She would not go into detail over why she did what she did, or what the circumstances were....saying "I can't get into it right now". If her words were true, she is deeply troubled and deeply apologetic (though, also quite dramatic)...but who the eff knows if her words are true.
She could either be continuing to BS me, or is genuinely a confused/troubled albeit loopy college student with a crazy creative mind and a lot of time on her hands.
I have never met her in real life. We chatted via e-mail and texted each other. We made plans to meet a few times but they were always cancelled or something came up at the last minute and we never ended up meeting.
She did tell me that the name she gave out was actually her name. She is a real human being, just not what she said she was. I think she took all her accounts down. That picture on twitter was not her picture. When I spoke to her last night I asked that she send me a photo right now as possible proof she is a real person. She did. I believe it.
I have no idea how she knew a surprisingly good amount about the legal field, or areas where people lived, or how she kept up with the level of detail she did within her story. As I've said to a couple of you, the 1/10th of me that isn't intensely creeped out is kinda impressed.
I did e-mail the person who randomly e-mailed me back, asking how they knew and if there is anything else I should know. She told me she followed FMN too and was confused by all her details, like vacations/jobs (I knew ADA's didn't get out at 5 o'clock)/etc. As creepy as FMN is, this person seems just the same. She apparently did "research" and found out and confronted her or something. I don't fully know and don't plan on finding out. But apparently she was right about FMN because everything is gone.
So, there you have it. Feel free to comment any questions. And FMN, if you read this, you're better off not commenting.
[Edit: I want to point out as a grown adult, I don't take all this very seriously. I find it funny and have been making jokes all day. Though creepy, it's all very amusing. Now, ON WITH YOUR DAY!]
