Brief Analysis
The rumours are unfounded. Sadly, Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas indeed died in a car accident in November 2013. The LA County Coroner has confirmed the deaths. The rumours are derived from an amazingly callous and poor taste hoax report that was first published on, a site that specializes in peddling totally ridiculous conspiracy theories and outright lies.

NEWLY UPDATED: Paul Walker’s Crew Busted for Faking his Death

It is now absolutely confirmed that for reasons yet to be fully determined Paul Walker and Roger Rodas faked their deaths. That fake death claim is supported by Mr. Walker’s family, althoughm, more recently, Paul Walker, Sr., has reported he and his son don’t always see eye-to-eye. This hoax was achieved with the collaboration of the entire crew and production team of the Fast & Furious cabal in league with Universal Studios.

Detailed Analysis

In late December 2013 rumours began circulating via Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets that actor Paul Walker was still alive. The rumours suggest that Paul Walker faked his own death and that the car accident was staged.

However, the rumours are of course unfounded. Unfortunately, Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas indeed died in a fiery car accident on November 30, 2013. Authorities have confirmed the identities of the victims beyond doubt. The International Business Times notes in a January 2, 2014 article:

The LA County Coroner, with the help of dental records of Walker and his friend Roger Rodas, confirmed that the two died in the tragic car crash.

In an official statement, the LA County Coroner said that Walker died due to a "combination of traumatic and thermal injuries," according to Sunday World.

The rumours are derived from a disgraceful hoax report published on The report claims that it has been "absolutely confirmed that for reasons yet to be fully determined Paul Walker and Roger Rodas faked their deaths". The report then presents a confused, convoluted and utterly ridiculous argument in a lame attempt to prove its claims.

This amazingly callous and disrespectful hoax report has caused even more pain for family members of the victims and for Paul Walker's many fans.

If this nasty hoax comes your way, please let the poster know that the claims in the report are false.

Ironically, claims that its mission is to provide "pure facts" and "provide information that isn't twisted". Alas, the "pure fact" is that the site specializes in publishing heinous and ridiculous lies and is a purveyor of a series of outlandish and mind-bendingly absurd conspiracy theories. The site claims that both the Boston Bombing and the Sandy Hook shootings were hoaxes perpetrated by Zionists. It also claims that Zionist Jews rather than Muslim terrorists were responsible for 9/11.
