Serial liar, scam literary agent, amnesia faker, and alleged mother-squasher Lisa Hackney (who in yet another alias switcheroo, now appears to be calling herself Melanie Mills) embellishes her imaginary life in this interview in the Madison County Record. A few heart-wrenching quotes:
“I’d never had anything like this happen to me before,” Mills said. “This involved my Mom. I allowed my emotions to control my intelligence. I didn’t have any intelligence at the time. I allowed my emotions to rule my actions. I didn’t want to deal with the pain.”
Oh, man. I'm bawlin' here.
Mills said being on the run and hiding out, not being able to befriend many people, was a complete change from her normal personality.
Yeah. Running a literary agency scam, real estate rental scams, eBay auction scams, and writers' conference scams is really really different from embezzling, kiting bad checks, and jumping bail.
Mills would do some research on her father while she was hiding out in South Carolina before eventually ending up in Canada, discovering that her father had tried to bribe both the United States and Canada with secrets to Hitler, such as his plans to build flying saucers.
I knew aliens were involved somehow.
“My Mom was actually investigated for that,” Mills said [of her father]. “He had cancer for 10 years. He was on morphine and he was threatening to kill himself and threatening to kill her. I remember she was calling me begging me to contact the doctor to not let him get released. But he did. He wasn’t home 24 hours and he shot himself twice in the abdomen. So, they suspected her. They took them both to the hospital. She had a nervous breakdown. He came to long enough to say that he shot himself.”
Do I sound heartless? Here's why. The Saga of Lisa Hackney:
