” I have reached the minute of coming tidy. My lies have weighed me down,” 67- year-old Stéphane Bourgoin told Paris Match magazine “Often I make movies in my head.”
An online investigation from a confidential forum 4ème Oeil Corporation found his lies, the Guardian reported
His name was connected to more than 40 criminal offense books; he had actually claimed that he talked to more than 70 serial killers.
Explaining himself as a mythomaniac, he admitted he had no training with the FBI, never spoken with Charles Manson and not played expert soccer for the Parisian group Red Star.

The story of his fake partner was based upon Susan Bickrest, who he fleetingly knew prior to serial killer Gerald Stano killed her in Florida in 1975.
” It was bull– t that I handled,” Bourgoin informed newspaper Le Parisien “I didn’t want people to know the real identity of somebody who was not my partner, however someone who I had actually met 5 or 6 times in Daytona Beach, and who I liked.”
He confessed his lies were driven by his desire to be popular.
” I am exceptionally and all the best sorry. I am ashamed of what I did, it’s definitely ludicrous,” he informed Le Parisien.
