DENVER The mother of the 6-year-old boy once feared missing inside a runaway helium balloon admitted the whole saga was a hoax, according to court documents released Friday.
Mayumi Heene told sheriff's deputies that she and her husband Richard "knew all along that Falcon was hiding in the residence" in Fort Collins, according to an affidavit used to get a search warrant for the home.

The two of them have mental problems. I hope they get the help they need. I keep saying at least they didn’t put Falcon in there for their stunt. That would have been murderous neglect.
He'll still be appalled. He'll just be appalled that his wife ratted him out.
It would make them more marketable? hahah. tell their kids to lie! but then, they are descended from aliens, she said. maybe they have different core beliefs.
They are a matched set. I hope the kids get some help.
His lawyer is saying she does not speak much English and did she confess while under arrest? You have to clutch at straws when the perps start to confess.
Who is writing the rescue bill?
She had command of the language. What bunk!
the public figured it out before law enforcement.
Obviously. Law enforcement is known for tracking things down when they don’t suspect anything.
Wake up, FRiend. The cops have to go on more than just common sense in building a prosecution. There would be no confession unless the cops were pursuing it...
Law enforcement figured it out the same time the public did. The sheriff later admitted they had misled the media about that to make it easier to investigate the family. Seems Papa Heene was very helpful while he thought police still believed him. During the period while the Sheriff was still indicating he didn’t think it was a hoax, they lured Papa down to the station and then went into the house to execute a search warrant and try to persuade Mama to go to a safe house with the kids.
Looks like trouble in Paradise...They each have their own Attorney. She’s cooperating and he is defiant.
She had been previously been encouraged to consider shelter... Next Reality Show: Divorce Court.
I hope the kids have a court-appointed lawyer of their own.
“The cops have to go on more than just common sense in building a prosecution.:
Law enforcement sucks. And that’s because the people involved in it suck....
As the wife of a LEO who takes his oath to enforce the Constitution seriously, I take exception to your statement. Of course there are bad cops. There are bad everything. But I think these guys understood the mentality of the nut they had had on their hands and led him down the primrose path to his own demise. At least I hope so for the sake of his wife and kids.
Not if the DNC lines up behind him.
...at least they didnt put Falcon in there for their stunt.
If they had put that kid in there, there is no way that balloon could have gone up into the air.
Tell it, sister! Most cops are great guys. I get so sick of the small crowd here on FR that likes to jump on them. Makes me wonder what their problem is.
