MEDIA MOCKERY: Man Who Died in Three ‘Terror Tragedies’ Still Alive

Over the past two months, a man known as ‘Alfonso’ has been reported dead in three separate terror related events by major media and social media, yet the man in question is reportedly alive and well.

Three Tragedies in a Year

The new revelations concerning a man known only as Alfonso, were first published at the international news agency France 24.

Alfonso was said to have died and rumored to have died, in the EgyptAir crash, the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting and Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport, from a combination of reports and posts now believed to be untrue.

This story comes after all three terror related incidents presented a number of questions that have still gone unanswered by officials. 21WIRE covered the thread of these highly suspicious events here, here and here, with in-depth analysis revealing a host of anomalies in the aftermath of each event.

Additionally, also contained within the France 24 report, it is stated that Alfonso, was apparently caught up in an alleged revenge social media prank after he reportedly owed money to deceptive pranksters (said to be friends) believed to have plotted a scheme that was later dispensed by larger media outlets.

The Daily Mail followed suit after France 24‘s revealing report:

“He died in the EgyptAir crash. Then again during the Orlando shooting. And last week ‘Alfonso’ from Mexico was tragically killed a third time in the bombing at Atatürk Airport in Istanbul.

At least, that’s what you might be led to believe if you followed news reports and social media scuttlebutt about these high-profile tragedies.

But the truth is, the man identified as a victim in all three attacks is still alive – and the victim of a ongoing revenge prank by former friends who say he owes them money, France24 reported.”

Is this really a revenge prank, as media and social media personalities claim – or is there something else at work here?

‘MEET ‘ALFONSO’ FROM MEXICO?’ – Images of the man pictured above made the rounds on major media outlets and social media posts immediately after the EgyptAir crash, the Orlando Pulse shooting attack and the again after the heavily coordinated attack in Istanbul. 

After the May 19th crash of EgyptAir flight MS804, an image of Alfonso was used in a BBC report just one day after the reported crash – yet curiously, in the report entitled “EgyptAir crash: The internet fakes and rumours,” the Alfonso-story was already being outed as fake by the major news outlet. Here’s a passage revealing the person known as Alfonso as reported by the BBC:

“When news of the missing EgyptAir flight emerged on Thursday morning people began sharing details of the unfolding story – but not everything was genuine.”

“A Twitter user called “Perro” posted a photo purporting to be of his brother Alfonso, prompting several retweets from fellow users.”

The report goes on to state that Alfonso’s image had already been used prior to the May 19th crash:

“But a Google reverse image search showed that the photograph had been used before online, and had been linked to a series of different Twitter handles.”

Though the BBC wasn’t able to exactly clarify where Alfonso’s image first appeared, they did state the following:

“It is unclear exactly where the photo is from and who the man pictured is, but it has been circulating online since December 2015, sometimes in reference to a dispute at a shopping centre in Mexico.”

The Twitter handle known Perro alBaghdadi, (referencing the purported ISIS terror leader) appears to be purposefully misdirecting the public with distorted propaganda and very likely is a sock-puppet profile.

Here’s another strange post illustrating the false nature of this account…

Media Buys and Sells False Claims

Perhaps even more shockingly however, Alfonso’s picture still appeared in a NY Times video allegedly displaying images of some of the Orlando shooting victims on the very same day that the Pulse nightclub shooting occurred.

Below, is an image displaying Alfonso as an alleged victim of the Orlando nightclub shooting…

After France 24’s recently published report calling out the discrepancy concerning the Alfonso storyline, the NY Times then removed the man’s image previously featured at the 2:24 minute mark during their video report:

Is this as close as it gets to a formal retraction from a major outlet?

Here’s another hoax social media image in the aftermath of the Istanbul attack – who really started the Alfonso meme?

The Alfonso story also appears to have also piggybacked another story that questioned the validity of an alleged survivor from the Orlando shooting in another media report we outlined here at 21WIRE:

Orlando’s Staged Elements & False Claims

Recently here at 21WIRE, we discussed much of the corporate media’s theatrical depiction of the Orlando shooting and the widespread characterization of the event, which has been reduced to two categories – that of a “lone gunman” and a saddened community centered on the sociopolitical ramifications of the incident, rather than an in-depth forensic analysis of the alleged crime itself.

In addition, we outlined some of the various Hollywood and media connections observed in the aftermath of the apparent Orlando shooting attack, as it was revealed that the world’s largest security firm G4S, who had employed the man named in the Orlando pulse nightclub shooting, Omar Mateen – is also client of the mass casualty and crisis actor staging company called CrisisCast.

As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also now being told that alleged Pulse nightclub ‘survivor’ Clint Lampkin’s account of the shooting has been called into question by media. The following is a YouTube clip from Wochit news reviewing the inconsistencies found by the CBS-affiliated television station WHNT-TV… 

The following was released by FOX6 on June 21st, examining WHNT-TV’s findings over the weekend that have since been removed from the network’s website:

“On Saturday, hundreds of people in Alabama were captivated by an impromptu speech by Clint Lampkin, a man who claimed to be a survivor of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.”

“I was in the bar when it all happened,” Lampkin told the crowd at the Rocket City Pride Memorial Service in Huntsville. “It’s been hard on me… seeing people get shot.”

Lampkin said the hate he witnessed first-hand is still overwhelming.

“It’s really strong. I mean not just for my friend but all the others that lost their lives. It’s hard you know. It really is. It’s really sad,” Lampkin says.

Continuing, the recently published article outlined the contradictory nature of Lampkin’s comments made during a memorial service and a Facebook post on his personal account on the morning after the shooting:

Lampkin-Orlando-fb-post(Left side screen shot of Lampkin’s strange comment after the Orlando attack) “But now, Lampkin’s story is being called into question.

One of Lampkin’s Facebook friends sent WHNT a screenshot of one of Lampkin’s Facebook posts from June 12, which shows he shared the story about the shooting and wrote: “Glad I wasn’t at that one.”

And what’s more, details of the Orlando report appeared to reveal the FBI’s transcript failed to disclose any actual shooting occurring inside of the club during the night in question as 21WIRE stated the following:

“While the report has a basic outline of “America’s largest mass shooting” it fails to account for any of the shootings said to have occurred within the Pulse nightclub, with no mention of individuals being shot at or reportedly shot at in the FBI’s official narrative. It’s as if they just left out the biggest piece of the puzzle.”

Continuing, we stated the following:

“The Orlando shooting details state “multiple shots [were] fired at Pulse nightclub at 2:02 am, as “Additional OPD officers arrived on scene,” at 2:04 am, with law enforcement engaging the shooter at 2:08 am – there is no other mention of shots fired until police exchange fire with the alleged suspect after breaching the wall at 5:15 am.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano reveals the following, causing quite a stir over social media circles. Here’s a post from TruNews adding to the questionable events in Orlando…

Spotted at Multiple Terror Events

The improbable Alfonso stage play also brings to mind another recent triple-performance actor of sorts – Mason Wells, a young Mormon missionary who just happened to be a three separate high-profile terror events.

Wells is said to have allegedly attended and survived 3 separate terror attacks since 2013 – Boston, Paris and Brussels. Coincidence?

During the Boston marathon bombing in 2013, the Washington Post ran an article on the statistical odds of being in one terror event. Using data from from the National Counterterrorism Center, we learned that:

“In the last five years, the odds of an American being killed in a terrorist attack have been about 1 in 20 million (that’s including both domestic attacks and overseas attacks).”

Watch Wells featured on ABC News:

Mockingbird Media & Faux Security

If you remember, in a BBC report in 2014, it was revealed how the very same child image of one the Sandy Hook victims matched a victim of the 2014 Peshawar School Massacre – prompting many critics and researchers to question how this could have come about.

Several new developments worth noting also occurred after EgyptAir, Orlando and Istanbul – the FBI’s case outlined against presumptive presidential nominee Hilary Clinton fell flat without an indictment, in addition to the Sunni vs. Sunni narrative out of Saudi Arabia and the ever-changing Brexit situation and all that surrounds it.

It was also recently released that the US Senate fell 1 vote shy of granting the FBI access to browser histories without court order.

Keep watch of these new developments and overlapping narratives for the bigger picture...
