On March 9th, 2015, Catfish Gary LaFollette announced that one of his followers “Jacob” was his brother and had committed suicide. This was a lie. There was no brother. The Jacob account was one of Gary’s sock puppet accounts. Gary had catfished a woman and couldn’t get rid of her so he faked his own death.
It was Gary’s 4th ex-wife (I know! 4th!) who let people know that Gary was alive and living at his mom’s house in Sevierville, Tennessee.
Gary posted an announcement about the untimely death on Pastebin and then the condolences started pouring in.
R.I.P Jacob On behalf of my family, I would like to take a moment to thank those of you who took the time to express condolences to our family. Jacob was a man with a huge heart & deep sense of patriotism. Instead of donations please donate time or money to the wounded warrior project. Thank you
