I checked Google news to see if there were any updates on the story, having followed it last year, and I saw this article, "'Catfish' Star, Filmmakers Hook Careers in Hollywood," from August 28, 2011 on ABC News online. It gives a quick "where are they now" summary.
It also has comments. Like this one from Skeptic335 which produced a "hunh" moment for me...
"Fascinating! Makes me think about power of "situational Influences" in open society created by people that feel trapped in life's situations it possibly creates less violent stories like "Carfish" and the "6th sense" to more violent stories like murder. I feel that we need to look much farther than how "situational influences" play out in the "Stamford Experiment". Since I had sleep APNEA all my life- which I call "natural water boarding" and the insane police interrogations that one can get if they are falsely accused. I feel that "less intense" "Situational Influences" that play out in real life may be "more intense" than the "dark side of interrogation "brainwashing based on "social interaction, abuse or lack there of. I feel that if we could research it with out "abusing people" and model it we we might find results far more controversial and shocking than the "the theory of evolution. Such a concept doesn't scare me although it scares my superiors and some people in the medical profession but not all."
