Todd Kelly Smith
Todd Kelly Smith, a radio disc jockey has been indicted by the Kentucky State Police after defrauding donors of money intended for ALS research.
Possible Con Artist
The man responsible, Todd Smith, is a self proclaimed ALS patient, supposedly diagnosed with ALS in 2001, and has now been uncovered as a possible con man.
In 2001, Kelly said he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS, a rare disease of the nervous system that causes rapid and irreversible degeneration of the nerves that send signals to muscles. Now, more than four years later, he has not shown any signs of the illness. And that, coupled with his inability to account for the thousands of dollars he's raised, has raised serious questions as to whether it's all been an elaborate hoax.
