Jeremy Meeks Killed, HOAX: Dies, and Wife ‘Lashanda Meek Killed Him 1 Hour After Being Released’ Huzlers Article Totally BOGUS!


An article saying Jeremy Meeks, whose “handsome” mugshot went viral last month, was killed by his wife is nothing more than a HOAX.

The bogus article was posted on Huzlers.com, a self-described “satire” website. According to its disclaimer at the bottom of each page, it says that “Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief.”

The fake article has a few thousand shares and “likes” on Facebook as of Wednesday night.

It reads in part: “According to jail records, Jeremy Meek was released from jail just before midnight on Tuesday night. About an hour later, just before 1 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Stockton Police found him laying in the road in the area of Dayton and West in Central Stockton. He was taken to Community Regional Medical Center where he died from his wounds shortly after arriving (sic).” 

The article also spells Meeks’ name incorrectly as “Jeremy Meek.”

On Twitter, a number of users reacted to the fake article, apparently believing it.

According to E! Online in a report last week, Meeks appeared in court in a jumpsuit. Meeks is facing one charge, which is a felon in possession of a firearm. 

He faces as many as 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. He was arrested as part of a Stockton gang sweep in June.
