Papaya is an... indescribable video by Alexander Marcus. Is it satire? Is he even a real person? [more inside]
On Aug 15 a three year old Cincinnati-area boy Marcus Fiesel, was reported
missing. The truth has finally come out.
On August 4th Marcus's arms were tied behind his back, wrapped in a blanket and bound with packing tape, and was locked into a closet by his foster parents. The boy was dead when they returned from thier two day long trip on August 6th. The foster dad then took the boys body to a rural location and burned it, several times, and reported him missing, over a week later. They claimed innoence even while they moved to a new house just days after he went missing. Then the until the police found the body, not far from a remote house of one foster mother's family members.
no national outlet has reported it, it's largely been ignored due to the renewed media obsession with JonBenet Ramsey.
Was it that Marcus was a boy? That he was dark haired? Or that he was poor and in foster care?
The star who never was. Part rock and roll history and part cautionary tale, the story of Marcus is too compelling to ignore. Well.... maybe not, but it's worth the read.
