Carlos Flores and the Very Angry Ghost
In 2004, Peruvian soccer player Carlos “Kukín” Flores was found lying on the street by authorities. He explained that he had run away from a “ghost.” While this story was strange, to begin with, Flores expected others (particularly his wife) to believe him, which wasn’t the reaction he received despite his insistence.
In 2009, Flores was caught – he admitted that the entire story had been fabricated because he had actually been “engaging with dirty ladies” and didn’t want his wife to find out. Needless to say, she wasn’t convinced by his explanation.
