Theorists are claiming that the Fast and Furious actor has faked his own death. According to Christian Post, fringe conspiracy websites like have surfaced with publications arguing the theory that Walker, and his friend Roger Rodas, did not die in the fiery car crash that took place in Santa Clarita, CA on November 30.

Conspiracy theorists are also insinuating that the Fast and Furious production team conspired with Universal Studios to carry out the near-impossible task.

Some of the sites have even analyzed several images that were taken before, during, and after the fatal crash. The images, which are being depicted as photo evidence, have been used to explain some of the details which theorists have classified as ‘unusual’ and ‘unconventional,’ given the nature of Walker’s reported death.

The images in question capture certain details that most viewers and readers probably wouldn’t notice at first glimpse. None of the sites clarify whether the images have altered, but indicates that the pictures were originally posted by the DailyMail.
The arrows in the image are used to highlight the visual aspects in question. The green arrow is directed toward the questionable white figure within the image. Conspiracy theorists are insinuating that the white figure is the ‘Imagery of a man in a white suit involved in accelerating the pyrotechnic fire’. The ‘man’ in the image is supposedly wearing a fire-proof suit like the one in the example image below:

The red arrow in the top image draws attention to a foreign object on the road right below the sidewalk near the burning car. While the image is extremely blurry at close range, conspiracy theorists believe the object to be a fire extinguisher. 
In addition to the alleged fire extinguisher, images of other foreign objects have also surfaced. Conspiracy theorists claim the items are “Hollywood props”, and that they were placed at the crash site before the accident.
However, there are a number of sites also debunking the theories. According to WafflesAtNoon, another group of images have also surfaced. Conspiracy theorists are also questioning the license plate for Rodas’ red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. Many fans have been left with raised eyebrows due to the license plate comparisons. But, this scenario was immediately cleared up, as the image on the left is of a license plate that a fan left as a memorabilia at the crash site, and the image on the right captures Rodas’ actual license plate.
While the allegations in question are definitely the makings of a viral hoax, many fans have checked out the pictures again. Some have even addressed their perspective of the hoax on Twitter. Unfortunately, others are left with a false hope that Walker may actually be alive.

Now the media is saying tht paul walker faked his death!!! I don’t know what to believe anymore #?
