Pictures identified...

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we have found the lovely young woman in the pictures that many had come to know as "Pepe."

She appears to have been a very good friend of Gina's, which makes this blogger all the more saddened by this turn of events.

Since she is more a victim in this than most, we are protecting her identity, and ask our readers to do the same. She has been notified, and could probably use your prayers as she comes to term with everything before her.

Some diligent Troll Squashers have identified other aliases used by Gina/Pepe: GraciePaint, Jedi's Dream, and Gracie n Chip.

She has also admitted on one site to being "in a relationship" with Paul. More information on Paul as it is tracked down...

So sad. Looks like Paul's Auction site is still up on ebay. http://stores.ebay.com/clamshellmuni-auction

Yes I just went and looked at that cached myspace page and saw the picture of the person who is the friend of Gina's whose picture was used for the FoP blog. She's identified on the MySpace as Gina's bestfriend and has a name of M**. She's also the same exact girl that Paul / ClamshellMuni has as "Pepe" on his flickr account. So....basically, 3 people are involved in this.
I'm sure you know which pic on flickr right? Geez. Well, the proof just gets worse and worse.

What about "Blake" ("Pepe's" BFF)?

"Q" (Paul), "Blake" and "Pepe" had been posting on cysticfibrosis.com for years... Are they all the same person?

I find this deeply disturbing... Mostly because I DO have Cystic Fibrosis, I HAVE had a double lung tranpslant and I have regliously followed her story as well as donating money...

The money is not important to me, it's the emotional connection I had, due to the same disease and being post tx....

I will wait until everything unravels before I completely right them off, mostly because it's just too effing painful for me to come to terms with, being screwed by people I thought were friends

Paul (clamshellmuni) went to Colby College (ME). He taught English in Chicago, apparently.

ChippedAway seems to be another posting ID on various health messageboards that *might* be connected. There seem to be a lot of similarities and the profile on an emetophobia board linked to their homepage http://public.fotki.com/jedisdream/

ChippedAway...who is supposedly "Blake", who supposedly has been in the hospital and dying, or possibly did pass away, is also a banker in Minnesota, just like "Gina"???? hmmm.....anyway, here's the link:

"Blake" says on July 21, 2008:
In my line of work (banking) almost all banks have the MN Banking Assoc. BCBS/Delta Dental combo, so finding a job that offers something like Medica or Preferred One would be difficult, it is hard enough to find a job with benefits! If it's out of network, I cannot pay out of pocket for the additional expenses, I am barely making it by as is, so I would have to go elsewhere, and who knows what that would lead to. I am a lucky one that my CF has not progressed much, and I was a late diagnosis so I don't see having a sudden crash or anything. But there will be so many people affected in a horrible way, I'm afraid.

Anyone notice that on the cached myspace page, Gina has another friend (not M**) named Peanut??? That was yet another nickname used on the blog for the supposed sick Gina/Pepe!

in response to a further below inquiry about "chippedaway", that is another of Gina's forum handles.
