It took me an hour, but I have finally proven that this is a hoax.

To start, both Al1 and Fortress are the same person. If you go to Al1's website You need to login to view this link you will find a series of pictures of him burying the "treasure". Two things to look at: The man's thumb in the second picture (you can zoom) and the shovel in the final picture.

If you go to a remake of Fortress' original youtube page, as the original one has been deleted, you can find Fortress' original videos. http://www.youtube.com/user/xxxxFORTRESSxxxx

It is here that, if you watch the fifth video where he is on the train with a shovel, you will see the white spots on the shovel from Al1's website and the one on the train are, in fact, located in precisely the same areas, and the shovel is of the same make.

If you go to the second video, when Fortress is working on opening the box, you can spot his thumb around 2:39. Note: Fortress uses his left hand to work the camera, and switches hands to grab the paper with his left hand. He is left handed. Al1 also uses his left hand to put the money in the bag (while holding the camera in his right hand.) Also, their thumbs are very similar (they bow out the same, the nails are cut short, wide thumb, no hair on the knuckles).

Also, what are the chances of a boy, not spam, stumbling across such a little-known website and actually deciding to pursue it?

So, they are, in fact, the same person.

But, what of the murder that an article cited? Surely it has credentials? Well, after about twenty minutes of searching (starting with the url you can spot near the end of "The Internet Story" video above, then googling key words of the murder, and finally searching for the names of hte places mentioned), I have discovered that not only does the article not exist, but neither does a place called "Felynamynydd."

And so, my friends, the result is this: It is but a cleverly laid out story and fancy-work. A hoax.

I am impressed by your investigative skills and everything but there's a link to the FILMMAKER who created this video's website in the description of the Youtube video.

User avatar #496 to #478 - RaeRi (10/15/2011) [-]
Haha yeah, I saw that. That was going to be part two of my investigation - why someone would want to make a movie on it and how it came to be - but then I got tired from a hard day's work.
User avatar #504 to #496 - clumsymagician (10/15/2011) [-]
My point was that the whole story came from a creative mind, that's the only grounds you need for concluding it isn't real. In fact I don't think it was meant to be taken seriously. But my hat is off to you!
#509 to #291 - anon (10/15/2011) [-]
I would love to say you are awesome just as everyone else here has. The problem is, how do I know that you're not Fortress or Al1 that is posting this on the internet in order to clear your name!

Just kidding.

Also, you could have just thought about it for a minute and one thing would kind of seem implausible....Exactly who uploaded the last video?

goddamnit let me enjoy the mystery. for 			*****		 sake you people don't have to prove everything fake. some things are better left alone. its not fun if you know its not true.

I enjoyed believing this story was real dammit... Oh well, guess I'll go waste another 10 minutes on some other story.

I also like to point out that the misspelling of "Whale's" He didn't notice until 2 weeks later....it took me like 4 seconds...and I'm ******* american
User avatar #364 to #291 - Nullifier (10/15/2011) [-]
Yeah, that stuff..but also...If those pictures were int he order of the alphabet, it doesn't matter. the message didn't have all the letters so it would be impossible to have a code from it. for example, there was no Q. In this case, the picture representing R would be assumed as Q in the absence of any Q. The message wasn't decodable without a separate code to use for the letters because not everythign was shown in the control.
User avatar #370 to #364 - RaeRi (10/15/2011) [-]
Woah, didn't even think about that. I was looking at the puzzle and was like, "This seems more difficult than implied..." And now I understand why. Nice call!

I should call you "L".

L would have seen the Al1 website and figured out the hoax with no other evidence. This man is more of a Near.
User avatar #381 to #366 - RaeRi (10/15/2011) [-]
I'm a girl, but I appreciate the Death Note references none the less. :) I think I should go by R, anyway. It's not fair trying to live up to someone else's potential.
User avatar #395 to #381 - successfulxtroll (10/15/2011) [-]
Oh, my bad. I apologize for the mixup but I've just learned to group people on the internet as men because typically men are the more angry of the two when getting genders confused. In my opinion going by "Ri" would be the coolest and most original. Also thank you for restoring my faith in the human race, for once I see someone with the ability to use their brain as I can. Btw, is your profile picture of Kairi?
User avatar #417 to #395 - RaeRi (10/15/2011) [-]
Ri. I will take that into consideration. And I appreciate your comment about restoring faith, I'm just doing my best. And yes, that is Kairi :D ******* love Kingdom Hearts

It all makes so much sense now! Thank you so much, because it is one in the morning here, and that video creeped me the **** out. Now that I know it's not real, I can go to bed. It is a really interesting story, though, and the guy who narrarated it's voice is so awesome :3

Imagine if Al1 and Fortress had been the same person and he was documenting his steps just to lure someone else out there to kill them.

That would have been pretty crazy, just saying.

by god your right but why? he saw that he only had a few hits why go on his treasure hunt for a few views?
User avatar #331 to #297 - RaeRi (10/15/2011) [-]
For fun, because some day he thought that people would see it and he could turn it into a mystery, as we have seen today.

I wonder if he knew it would take six years...xD

User avatar #413 to #393 - RaeRi (10/15/2011) [-]
There was no article. There was no Welsh farm. There is no such place called "Felynamynydd." There was no murder, and there was no dead body.

There are no unsolved stabbings of males on the books for 2005 or 2006 in the UK, especially not where the victim is unidentified and not in Wales.

the site with the article is You need to login to view this link
there is no such site..

Fortress closed his account.

The way he used his knife to open the box in the video is prime moviemaking stuff. Instead of using a screwdriver or being unprepared for the challenge he pulls out his knife which.... lets the audience know he has a knife on him all the time preparing them for the later moment when he maybe got stabbed or maybe stabbed some other guy.

Also his dialogue in the videos is a little bit forced.

It's all made up
