People magazine has deleted a story about a Las Vegas shooting victim who doesn’t appear to exist.
The magazine ran a story on Wednesday about a terminally ill man, Larry Parra, who they claimed was among the 58 people killed in the mass shooting in Las Vegas last Sunday. The story, was based entirely off the account of one alleged eyewitness, Jason Rogers.
The photos that Rogers provided of “Larry Parra” are actually photos of Rogers’ husband, Mic reported.
Rogers claimed to have been at the Las Vegas concert with Parra, only to have gotten separated shortly before the shooting started.
“I heard the shots, and after I got up from the ground from ducking I went to try and find Larry,” Rogers told People. “I didn’t want to leave him because he is a very dear and close friend.” (Read more from “People Mag in Hot Water Over Fake Story About Fake Vegas Victim” HERE)
