Ismael Dejesus Scandal Has Legs 10

As I wrote earlier, Ismael Dejesus is a guy who supposedly filmed the police shootout in Dallas and then called into CNN and walked Don Lemon through the footage and also offered a lengthy diatribe of his positions on terrorism and gun control for no apparent reason. The entire series of events seemed odd so I did some research and looked at his Facebook page, which I deemed to be fake. There is no other record of his existence outside of a Linkedin page which claims he’s from Orlando, went to Rutgers, and lives  in Dallas. Weird. Not impossible, but weird.

I found it strange that a guy so articulate on the matter disappeared after his first media performance, and tried to contact him but received no response. I then went on Facebook and messaged over 40 of his Facebook friends until Facebook realized I was basically spamming people and stopped allowing me to do it, asking:

“Hi, do you know Ismael Dejusus?”

I received several responses from people claiming to know Dejesus. One told me to get lost. Another said he knew Dejesus “through the car scene.” Three others said they had met Dejesus and discontinued the conversation. All but one of these people’s profiles appeared to be fake. I then got a message from Alfonso Garcia:

Hi, do you know Ismael Dejesus?
Alfonso Garcia accepted your request.
I do why?
I’m a journalist I’m trying to get ahold of him, as he recorded footage of that shootout in Dallas as you may or may not be aware.
He then ceased immediately responding. So I looked at his photos. These are photos of Alfonso Garcia, Ismael Dejesus Facebook friend:
Look Familiar? It’s the same guy they are using for the Ismael Dejesus photos. Below is the sole photo of Ismael Dejesus from his Facebook page.
Someone want to explain to me what is going on? I’m getting on the phone with Facebook, CNN, and the Dallas Police Department to see if they have contacted Dejesus to interview him about witnessing the shootout.
This is super sketchy.
More later.

    This is absolutely ridiculous coming from somebody who knows both Alfonso and Ismael, I just went to lunch with Ismael today so I’d say he is rather alive and real……..

    Hello, just because what you wrote is completely wrong does not mean that my comments shouldn’t be approved. So much for freedom of speech, you just want to pick and choose what people can say about your terribly written article……

    Hahahahahaha you hack. This is two different guys who hundreds of us all know separately. Get a source next time if you want to attempt grade school level journalism. Wow.

    Wow, Matt, you are an idiot. I know both of them and met them both through a car Club. The worst part about this article is your assumptions: “I deemed this to be fake.” So you are an expert in data forensics? You looked at two Facebooks and made a poor assumption about 2 different people.
