Chris "Birdman" Andersen: Inside double-Catfish scheme that's made him a recluse
Other alleged Chartier victims named by Boyd include 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year Jaclyn Swedberg....
When Chartier will finally go on trial for her various activities is unknown at this point: Boyd writes that weather delays and the intricacies of the case probably mean proceedings won't get underway until 2015 at the earliest. In the meantime, Chartier is back at home, although with no Internet access by court order.
Andersen, for his part, is a key component of the Heat's campaign to three-peat as NBA kings -- something no squad has done since the 2000-2002 Los Angeles Lakers. But the ordeal has left a mark on him every bit as indelible as the many tattoos that cover him. Boyd writes:
Away from the court the once-flamboyant extrovert remains haunted by his harrowing ordeal. He has mostly avoided children's homes and hospitals. He recently sold his house in Larkspur and moved to a place even more secluded. His lawyer says that in a bizarre twist, he's now taking on some of the traits of the woman who tormented him. "He's become a recluse."To read Boyd's article in its entirety (which we highly recommend), click here.
