It seems incredible after the widely-publicized outpouring of grief following Paul Walker's death, but there are people who truly believe that his death was a hoax.
On November 30, 2013, Fast & Furious star Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas died when the Porsche Carrera GT they were driving crashed into a tree. However, whether from a refusal to deal with their grief, a cry for publicity, or just being plain wrong, there is an entire Facebook group dedicated to the notion that Paul Walker's death was faked.
Despite the fact that a death hoax seems highly unlikely - not to mention unbelievably cruel to Paul's family and friends - here is the 'evidence,' as presented by the group, who call themselves 'Paul Walker Still Alive?'...
Paul's Autopsy results were placed on 'Security Hold'

This was reported by Us Weekly on December 3, 2013, who received a statement from Lieutenant Fred Corral saying:
"The case has been placed on security hold. No information is to be released on either decedent at this time."
There's no further information about what this rather ominous statement actually means, but the most obvious explanation seems to be, 'this is just one of those things cops say to make journalists go away.'
Two Different Number Plates?
According to the group, the number plate found in the wreckage of the tragic crash site was different to the one on the car pictured with Paul (above right). Maybe the photograph was photoshopped... or maybe it's a random picture of Paul with another car. The Paul Walker Still Alive? group does not source the pictures so we cannot be certain.
From Orange to Red?
According to the Paul Walker conspiracy camp, the car on the left (with Paul) is orange, and the wreckage shows a red paint job. Honestly, I think this is clutching at straws here, and is the kind of 'I see one color, you see another' debate that is more appropriate to something less upsetting, such as that goddam stupid blue-or-gold dress.
There are many articles claiming that Paul Walker's death was a hoax, and the Paul Walker Still Alive? Facebook group continues, but you'll have to make up your own minds.
Honestly, can't we just let Paul rest in peace?
