On October 15, 2009, Richard and Mayumi Heene called 911 in a panic. Their son Falcon had gone missing, as had a large metallic helium balloon housed in their backyard. Local and federal authorities conducted a highly publicized rescue effort for the “UFO,” but when the balloon was recovered, it was found empty. The Heenes eventually admitted that the incident was a hoax and a publicity stunt—Falcon was in the house the whole time.
Facing a media circus and exasperated law enforcement, prosecutors at the Laramie County District Attorney’s Office needed to act. But first, they had to decide which aspects of this debacle were truly criminal. Which charges would satisfy the public opinion and deter future stunts like this, while being legally defensible and just? With both parents facing charges, what responsibility did the prosecution have to preserve the unity of the family? The parents were eccentric, but were they unstable? Was it even in the children’s best interests for the parents to retain custody?
America's Got Talent said no to The Heene Boyz (Worlds Youngest Metal band) but just in time for the four year anniversary this week, Project Independent said yes!!!
Now that it's been four years, they are free to make the movie.
