I found a very intriguing story about a woman who claimed to be a 9/11 survivor. The story is quite amazing. Her name is Tania Head and a documentary called "The Woman Who Wasn’t There: The True Story of an Incredible Deception" describes her story. In it, she claims to have narrowly escaped death in the south tower of the World Trade Center. Trouble is, that never happened.

Head said she lost her fiance in the tragedy. The New York Times discovered the deception back in 2007. The bizarre part of the story is that she was president of the World Trade Center Survivors Network and was a high profile woman at many Memorial Events.

After the paper uncovered the deception, she disappeared. Head resurfaced at the 10th Anniversary Memorial last year and when she was confronted by a reporter, she was hostile.

Her real name is Alicia Head. She is from Spain and was actually in business school in Barcelona on September 11, 2001.

I have to wonder why someone would do this. Did she want 15 minutes of fame? Was she lonely? Police say she committed no crimes...she never profited from her story. If you ever get a chance to see the documentary, check it out.
