Bogus Katrina Victim Confesses

Walter Stall a.k.a. Ray Johnson confessed to investigators that his real name is Walter Stall and that his story of losing a wife and son in Hurricane Katrina was all a sham, according to the Smith County Sheriff's Department. Stall was taken into custody on unrelated charges during a follow up interview with KLTV 7 Tuesday. Authorities believe Stall may have received money from local East Texans and possibly from FEMA based on his bogus story. How much he got is still being looked into by local officials and the FBI.
