We all saw the story...

But now there's word the story might be a hoax.  The Washington Post is reporting that a local Mississippi paper, the Laurel-Leader Call is saying that the story was nothing more than an 'fundraising hoax'.

The paper cites several inconsistencies with the story as possible proof.  You can read that story HERE.

On Monday, the following statement appeared on the Victoria's Victories Facebook page  (a page created to give medical updates on Victoria):

"I promise its not a hoax, I never thought any of this would blow up the way it has.  The article circling the web calling this a hoax is untrue.  The article it self say the investigation is not complete. It is not over until KFC releases a statement.  The media outlet running this story is not connected with KFC.  The family has not asked for anything, a attorney is handling all the media publicity for the family pro bono.  Please do not believe untrue media.  I have personally watched this family go without to provide for Victoria.  They have not and would not do anything to hurt Victoria in any way."
