what happened to inner_justin?
karyn_nomore
Wondering what happened to inner_justin? Wondering why she kicked off her Queer as Folk friends on Facebook? Aren't seeing entries in her new journal the_fmly_bzns? Wonder no more.

For a while now, Karyn posted personal stories about her best friend Adam, his partner Ikey, and their daughter. Suddenly, Adam dies of AIDS related complications and Ikey, heartbroken, commits suicide. This leaves their daughter all alone and orphaned in the world.

Sound like a Lifetime Movie of the Week? You're right! It is.

With the internet, information isn't always as hidden as you want it to be. In this case, the story seemed too hard to believe. It only became really hard to believe when photographs of the daughter went from adorable to unbelievable. Unfortunately, the journal has been deleted so you just have to take my word on this. Just a few months ago, Liana was just learning how to walk. Recently, photographs of an active toddler were shown, about two to three years old. The photographs were supposed to be just taken and the child that was in her journal was in long sleeved winter wear in the middle of summer? Unlikely.

She had one photograph of a child taken in summer clothing and it was obvious that they were two entirely different children. It can only be surmised that the photographs were taken from various sources and put in her journal to concoct her story.

Exploiting the feelings of others, playing on their sympathies, and duping her friends list, people whom she supposedly trusted, and trusted her, was the only true story there.

Comments of sympathy, understanding, and empathy flooded her entries. She advocated to donate to charities in support of this dearly departed couple. The charities? Always a good cause. The reason behind the push for donations? False.

Adam and Ikey are alive. They're alive, heterosexual, and only friends but haven't seen one another in years. Ikey has a child and is married to a woman. Adam does live in Brooklyn and is a lawyer. Dead? No. Positive? No. Gay? No.

Neither have spoken to Karyn in a long time and now we can all understand why.

"Adam's" LiveJournal has been deleted, posts made from "Adam" to the sunshine_ai community have been deleted, and references to Adam in the Supernatural journal are gone.

She never posted photographs of the couple together in her journal, only separately. Any photographs with her in them with either one of them were old and referenced high school. There were no new photographs of her taken with her "friends".

There was a photograph of Adam and Ikey's gravesite. Through a trace, the graves were found to be located in Charleston, South Carolina. The cemetery hasn't had a burial since the 1960's.

It can only be assumed that someone found out about Karyn's true identity and she made an attempt to erase everything, delete these lies that she told in an effort to create a new identity in the Supernatural fandom. Friends were deleted from her Facebook because that's probably where they traced her imaginary friends. They are real people but not the people that she purported them to be.

Why is this journal here? People deserve to know. She played people. She played on their sympathies, their affections, their feelings, and emotions. It was cruel. People trust. LiveJournal is a place where we should feel free to gather and talk about our lives with people we have things in common with. We share fandoms, we share the experience of fandom, and through that, we share with each other.

We shouldn't have to question what's true and what's false but that's what happened here.

She fooled people and she did it intentionally with no apologies. She just expected it to all go away, deleted forever. She hurt people. She gave a terrible disease to an imaginary person without really experiencing it in her own life. She exploited other people's grief and experiences with that disease. She exploited suicide. She used an imaginary child to gain even more sympathy and attention for herself.

It wasn't right and she should know that.

Is there any actual proof to all this other than hearsay? I was her friend for quite some time on LJ, and I never saw any pictures of two different little girls, just one.

Also, did she ever mention Adam's last name? Just because you tracked down a lawyer in Brooklyn named Adam doesn't automatically make everything she said false.

I'm not saying whether or not I believe it was all fabricated, I'm saying I want actual proof. These are some heavy accusations, and it seems fishy to me that there isn't any evidence in this entry, just someone's thoughts...

Also, I am her friend on her other journal, with no problems. Meh.

Also, all this posting anon? In the immortal words of Brian Kinney: Grow some balls.

Yes, she mentioned Adam's last name and that he's a lawyer in Brooklyn. Lawyers who passed the bar is public info. and he's the only one with that name in Brooklyn. His contact info. is listed in one of the posts above. I'm sure you could email him and he could confirm it for you if you need proof beyond a shadow of a doubt. Or you could contact her "boyfriend" Julian who she also lied about. http://julianmccullough.com/
Better yet, why not ask Karyn yourself? I'd love to hear her response.
As for people who have a problem with anon comments...I think you all are seriously underestimating just how psycho she is. She killed off two people in her delusional fantasy land. Who's to say she wouldn't turn violent in real life if she hasn't already? What she did is not normal by any stretch of the imagination.

Really? Is she gonna come down your internet connection and knife you? Unless you're in the habit of giving out personal information like your address, name, etc. I think you're fine.

Like I said, if you're gonna say something, at least have the balls to own it.

And honestly, I don't care. Welcome to the internet, where people lie and cheat and hide behind anon posting/commenting. And always promise cookies when there are no cookies. :'(

No, she isn't going to come through my internet, but she might come to my house which she has the address to. Over months and months and months I became friends with her. I trusted her (as did many people), met her in person, went to some fan events with her, exchanged cards with her, she has my cell number, my address, my email, knows my real life friends, and knows my real name and LJ name. I wonder if she knew all of that info. about you if you'd still have the "balls" to talk about her here. If so then have at it. And before you say I shouldn't have given her that info. I've made many friends on LJ who have become friends in real life and have had no problems before with anyone, but of course they didn't turn out to be raving freakin' lunatics. Better safe than sorry is my motto concerning her.

Exactly. That's why I post anon. Let's not tempt the wolves, or in this case, the fucking nutcases.

ITA with you...she's a freak, and I'd be scared too if she'd know all that information about me, hugs you^^

Excuse me? If you don't care, why are you even in here? At least be honest that you care or are at least interested in what's going on in here to stir up shit.

As her friend, doesn't it make you wonder why she suddenly deleted her journal AND every single trace of this story, coincidentally around the time someone called her on its authenticity? And why in her SPN journal she refuses to be associated with inner_justin and everything connected to these events? I haven't heard of anyone actually getting any explanation from her, and I seriously don't believe nobody asked her for one. Have you? I'm not asking this in an accusatory way, I'm just puzzled how someone can be her friend and not demand to know what the hell is going on.

I must have missed something, because one day I came home and found out her journal was deleted. No idea why. I asked about it in my journal, but got no response. And suddenly I find this? I'm just a little suspect of anything on the internet that doesn't come with actual proof. As for her other LJ, she friended me me on it a loooong time ago, but I just got around to friending it back yesterday. I'm not really into SPN, which the only thing on that journal, but I just wanted to see if there is anything else there, which there isn't. Even the locked entries aren't anything personal, just about SPN.

But she'd made noise about deleting her journal in the past, so I'd just assumed she'd done it finally. Meh. Maybe I'll be mad or whatever about it later; right now I'm too goddamn tired to care about anything. Eff you work!! >:O *ahem*

Bai now.

It is all true, two people who are on my flist and have been close to Karyn for a long time and had her email address asked her straight out if it was true and she admitted it to them , that yes, it was all true, she lied and lied and lied.

She hurt a lot of people, and yes, she needs a lot of help, hope she gets it!!!

Yeah, can we get copies of these e-mails?

I only kept a copy of her answer given in an email from one of the people, but will not say who sent it to me to protect their privacy, but it is someone I trust completely.

Questions sent to Karyn...

Hello Karyn

I need you to tell me the real reason you deleted your LJ please.

I don't think that is a lot to ask of you as we have been friends for a long time but considering what has come to light lately, I need to hear the truth from you.

I hope our friendship has meant enough to you for you to do that



This is Karyn's answer....


I cant say it outloud. Im too ashamed and sick and hate myself too much.

Im sure since im getting this type of email from you somehow you already know.

Im starting an in treatment extensive therapy regimin next week. I need serious help and have for some time. Your friendship has and still does mean a lot to me. But im sure after all this the thought of me sickens you.

From here all i can do is go forward and try and get the help i need and try and start over if thats even possible. The consequences of my actions are severe and im accepting them as they come. Apologies do nothing now but i offer one to you.

It was in the stories that she told. That little girl had just been born and not too long after, the girl is walking. That's not really possible for a newborn. She posted some pictures right before deleting her journal that had a completely different girl in the photograph. Someone called her on it and the journal was deleted.

Her proof disappeared with the journal and with her deleting everyone from her Facebook. She got the pictures from Facebook and all proof that you seem to require hasn't been saved because the journal is gone.

She filters her other journal and doesn't put people related to the Queer as Folk fandom, you know. Who knows what she's saying to the Supernatural crowd about her personal problems.

People don't want to be publicly associated with this. Apparently, you do. But it's anyone's right, anyone who's been truly hurt by this to do whatever they want and you should respect that.

This is days late because I just found out about this lj, but I can confirm that this is true. I was her closest friend (online mostly, but we visited in person a few times) for 3 years, and the minute I tried addressing this with her, asking her what it could mean, she stopped speaking to me. I haven't heard back, and I don't think I'm going to. She's never cut me off before, we used to talk almost every day. I really hate to believe it, but it seems it's true. :(

Aw, Ryo :( I've been wondering how you were doing. I just want to give you *big hugs*.

*hugs*

I'm so sorry, honey. :(

oh, hon- I am sorry for your loss.
It IS a loss- you lost someone who you though was a true friend, and I'm sure you must miss her terribly; not to mention how shocked, hurt, and angry you must feel.
This entire mess is really such a shame.
**really big hugs**
