Hyapatia Lee: death fake?

Hyapatia Lee was a well-known porno actress a decade ago. She hasn't worked lately, but most women in the genre retire early so I never assumed anything by it.

However I recently read that the rumors of her death were false and she had faked her own death. I had never heard the original rumors that she was dead, nor was I able to find any further information about her fake attempt online. Anyone know the real story of what happened?

Wow! I had never heard any "death rumors" either! Hope someone who knows "The Straight Dope" can fix us up here! I hope it ain't so.......

I found several online references and all agreed that Lee was alive and faked her death. So it appears that much is probably true. But none of the online references I found gave any details about what happened or speculated on why Lee did this.

It's all from the friction burns she got from doing Ron Jeremy.

Wow. This is a story about which it is surprisingly difficult to find reliable information. I've only got rumors to share. Supposedly Hyapatia's fake death tied several scams she was working together. It looks like she froze sales of merchandise through her website while filing for bankruptcy–-evidently she needed her income within a certain range to pull this off. Then (after becoming officially bankrupt?) she started spreading rumors that she was very sick. This fake illness was the prelude to her fake death. Some friends helped her spread her lies, thinking she was about to fake her death to escape a stalker (who may or may not be real). Once Hyapatia "died" she again started selling merchandise over the net. Allegedly, it was posted at her website that she left her family poor and destitute and that fans needed to buy up the last of her merchandise–-which, thanks to her death, was now comprised of collectors' items–-so that her survivors could eat and pay their bills. I'm not sure, but there may have also been some sort of "memorial fund" or something.

Does this story sound fishy to you? It does to me. I don't really believe Hyapatia is guilty of everything of which she is accused, though I think there are some kernels of truth in there. I did find a couple sites that go into this story in more detail. I suggest that, if you're interested, you go to the Luke Ford website and find Hyapatia's name under the "stars section"–-most of the very convoluted story is there. I couldn't say whether the allegations made against Hyapatia are true, nor whether those allegations are even reported correctly. I should also warn you that if you go to the Luke Ford website, you will encounter nudity (which is why I'm not providing a direct link here) and pop-ups.

While searching for more information on this story, I found a website where you can purchase, for $6.95, an issue of [/i]Draculina[/i] magazine which includes "an in-depth look at the life and fake death of porn star Hypatia Lee." I would provide a link, but the magazine also contains Gothic Sluts, Wrestling Vixxxens, and Sexy China Dolls. If you wish, I will e-mail you the web address. I myself have never looked at this magazine before (honest!), so caveat emptor and all that.

For what it's worth, using likely search terms and dates, I searched my school's journalistic database thingey--which provides stories from legitimate news sources--and came up dry. Evidently nobody considered any of this newsworthy enough to report on except a few rumor mongers on the web.

I hope I was helpful. And if not, at least I found a couple nudie pix of Hyapatia while looking for info. Cheap thrills andnostalgia--not a bad way to spend some time between lit and algebra tests . . .

According to she faked her death, no details. I recall reading about a plan she had hatched to scam the govt by not paying taxes and ripping off customers.

From the trivia section under her mini-biography at IMDB:

Faked her own death in the late '90s but was discovered alive in California. Never gave a reason for faking her death.

After retiring from adult movies in the mid 90s, she tried to distance herself from the adult film industry as much as possible and is said to very regretful about doing adult movies.
(2002) Lives in Indiana with her second husband and three children.
Indiana is just a stone's throw from here. S'pose I could just swing over and ask her about it. Or maybe a Hoosier Doper could volunteer to track her down and get the SD.

Yeah, I'm sure she'd just love people calling her up to discuss her porn name.

I'm just shocked that someone who would have sex with a strange on stage for money would turn out to have questionable morals.

Sam Stone- Wow, that's a pretty broad brush you're using there. I hope you're wearing good back support.

The adult industry is pretty inclusive. The odds are good that Hypatia knew every guy she ever did a film with. I'm not saying they were all poker buddies on the weekend, but at that time, men in the industry were still fairly consistent.

And I don't see any problem with her morals, up until a possible defrauding of the gov't. Of course, I don't see anything morally wrong with porn either.

I didn't say it was. Playing poker isn't immoral either. But if I sit down at a poker table I'm not expecting many of the players to be Father Mulcahey, y'know?

She was my favorite porn star of her era. I liked her because she always looked like she was having fun, and while not a particularly good actress, was at least articulate.

She also, I learned while working in the retail distribution side of biz very briefly, was a major force in trying to get actual plots and storylines expanded in the porn market, and had a taste for classic literature.

The sheer boneheadedness of her alleged death faking efforts leaves me a little sad, truth be told.

Holy cow. Looking at that site... Porn stars must drop like flies. Considering that most of them should still be quite young, and most of them have to at least look physically fit, the death rate seems out of this world.

Lots of murders. Another strange thing - quite a few women with self-inflicted gunshot wounds. My wife is a psych nurse, and she says that gunshot suicides are very, very rare for women.

Strange world.

Well, Sam, look at how many of them died of AIDS and OD's. There also seemed to be quite a few automobile accidents, possibly as a result of driving while intoxicated?

Lastly, I may sound like a conspiracy nut, but I would be willing to bet that a few of those self-inflicted gunshot woulds were cleverly concealed murders.

Raisinbread's site was the one I referred to in my OP where I first heard about this whole thing. Unfortunately, the complete story they told was "Hypatia Lee - Faked Her Own Death." Which prompted my unsuccessful search, which prompted this thread...

Thanks all for the information.
