Forest Boy Speaks - First Words Are I Want To Meet Bat Boy


Is anyone else thinking this whole forest boy thing in Germany is a hoax? Here is a kid who is 17, apparently has been living in the woods for five years and speaks only English. If you have not heard the story, the short version is that this boy named Ray came out of the woods the other day and approached guards at Berlin City Hall carrying a backpack, tent and sleeping bag. My first question is why he did not stop a policeman on the way to city hall and instead walked all the way there. Second, this would mean the kid was 12 when supposedly he went into the woods with his father who died about two weeks ago. Ray buried his dad on a shallow grave which has yet to be found. Ray then walked for two weeks until he got to city hall. Apparently Ray is having trouble adjusting to sleeping on a real bed and using soap and eating proper food. Ray is presumed to be British.

Other oddities - look closely at the picture. Why does it look like a composite of many different pictures. Also, when first reported, and even recently when this picture was posted, he was described as "blond hair, blue eyes" = uh, which type of blond is that? And don't even say strawberry blond - those labels are idiotic. There is brown, black, RED, and blond. Strawberry blond is REDDISH BROWN not blond. Sorry for the rant, but its really chapping my ass lately after I saw someone (again) refer to Justin Timberlake as a blond. Ugh.

pretty nice haircut for a kid who has been in the forest for 5 years.

YourNameHere said...

^Maybe he chewed his hair off himself to keep from going hungry?

BigMama said...

LOL maybe. I am sure they cleaned him up or maybe that is why it looks photoshopped because they were attempting to make him appear younger and gave him a dorky haircut, etc.

Christine said...

He looks like Hilary Swank, doesn't he?

linnea said...

Yeah I call BS on this, too.

sharknerd said...

I think he's another of Arnold Schwartzenegger's illegit kids :?)

what do I type here? said...

Christine you are hilarious!
and sharknerd that is funny too!

JJ said...

I thought Hilary Swank too.

Feisty said...

That picture is the "identikit" picture. I think that means it's the crappy newspaper sketch based on how he was described.

The british media doesn't have any actual pictures of him yet, so this is the one they made up of him.

5 years is a long time to be in the wilds of Europe. Is there really that much forest left there, that they would have no base camp?

This is the first i've heard of this and so many pieces just don't make sense. And yea wtf is wrong with that picture?

Robert said...

Bat Boy!

Momster said...

^^LOL!

Janet296 said...

This is a computer sketch I think. This boy is underage and Germany probably won't let his real pic be shown.

Hahahahahahaha

That picture looks like one that they do when they have a decomposed body and they are trying to show what the person looked like in real life. I call whatever on this story.

RocketQueen said...

This sounds like the beginning plot to Hanna. Well, until she goes on the murderous spree.

bluebonnetmom said...

I wonder if he was kidnapped, does not know it, and they are trying to figure out who he is. This could be real. We have heard weirder stuff, I cannot believe a man stuffed his daughter in a basement for what 20 years, repeatedly raped her and had children/grandchildren with her. People out in the world can sometimes be really sick. : (

Mango said...

"I want to meet bat boy" and "He looks like Hilary Swank" made me LOL!

Anotheramy said...

He wouldnt be the first person to be kept in a tent, or basement, or dungeon.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

If it was in the US....hoax. But Germany...this is probably legit.

B. Profane said...

Actually, Germany has had many tales like this. Google Kaspar Hauser.

Squeezebox said...

This sounds as believable as last week's British tabloid story about a supposed dwarf porn star who looked exactly like Gordon Ramsay and who was supposedly found dead inside a badger den.

RocketQueen said...

^OMG Squeezebox - I thought I was seeing things when I read that headline. What a story! Brilliant, whoever wrote it.

kathrynnova said...

this sounds too much like the plot of a werner herzog movie

claudia hermione said...

they can't use his real picture as he's underage and doesn't have a parent to grant permission. this is common over there, and therefore the use of this image is not bullshit.

other parts of the story (found on credible news sites) add more to it, and the authorities involved say his story checks out.

if for any other reason, it's a kid, and whether his story is true or not he needs help and is trying to obtain it the only way he knows how.

Anoia said...

I live in Berlin. I call BS. Frist, I haven't heard anything about this boy in the news here. Second, those inventing the story obviously didn't even bother to check where our city hall is on google maps vs where the forests are. Go to google maps and look up Berlin rotes Rathaus, and try to find a forest near it.
Do they want to tell me, that this guy managed to hide in one of the city parks or did he just happen to walk all the way from i.e. Grunewald? Now even our forests are very frequented by joggers, people with their dogs, people on horses and not to forget tourists (visiting castles, ect.). Definitely a hoax.
