Moon rock drama, 74-year-old lady probed

moon hoax 1

Who called the feds?

In May 2011 a federal sting operation resulted in the recovery of a piece of lunar dust smaller than a grain of rice, and left the frightened 74-year-old female suspect claiming she had been manhandled and her property taken away. Joann Davis, a 74-year-old grandmother, says she was trying to sell the moon rock to raise money for her sick son. She asserts that the lunar material was rightfully hers, having been given to her space-engineer husband by Neil Armstrong in the 1970's. She says that she contacted NASA to help her sell the fragment of moon rock, only to find herself confronted by government agents. Have a guess who called the feds.
