Man, whose wedding went viral accused of faking a terminal illness

Several of the women accusing a Florida man of the forge of stage 4 cancer, and manipulating them to get food, money and shelter, just a few weeks after his marriage with a long lost love went viral.

Ken Boyer, 60, of Palm Bay, Palm Bay, first known as WKMG-TV under his marriage to a Missouri woman Michelle Kimbrel in May. Boyer claimed that he “restored” with Kimbrel on Facebook a few weeks before they tied the knot.

If Boyer’s story went viral, the women of Florida initiated contact with the station, and she says that she recognized Boyer as the former throw.


The women shared similar stories: how they met at Boyer how he told them that he had stage 4 liver cancer and that it was “love at first sight’ when he met them.

“He loved each and every one of us,” Karen Hagerty said WKMG-TV on Monday. “And he loved all of us from the second he laid eyes on you…He is very good at what he does.”

Hagerty added that Boyer was “a master manipulator and con man.”

Boyer would reportedly make use of the women to get food and asked to stay at their place, in order to prevent another person who he described as the “landlady,” who was later identified as Barbara Jones.

Jones said that she had with Boyer since the end of the 2015 planned on spending the rest of her life with him, according to WKMG-TV. They did not even know of the other women, until they checked his mobile phone records.

Jones has a civil lawsuit against Boyer last week to pick up $ 22,000 she lent him.


Cheryl Alvarez, Boyer allegedly called his “Jamaican princess,” also said she was suspicious of Boyer’s cancer diagnosis when she was a journey that required an hour drive.

“It is five hours to the Keys and five hours back, someone going through cancer of the liver stage 4 can’t do that,” said Alvarez.

Boyer said in a statement to WKMG-TV that he did not deny knowing the woman.

“I have dated all, I’m not going to play their game. The people who truly know me and truly love me still do, but you haven’t spoken with any of them. You’re only talking to angry, hateful, jealous women,” Boyer said.

He defended his diagnosis of cancer, though he had no medical evidence.

“Nobody said anything about weeks to live, and I’m sorry the drama card was used to sell the story, but we are done with this,” Boyer said.
