Forest Boy (Robin van Helsum)

Forest Boy


A mysterious young man who pitched up in Berlin in 2011, claiming he had lived in the forest with his father for the past 5 years and had amnesia.

Forest Boy jerked Die Polizei around for 9 months until they published his picture. The good news…he was identified…as Robin van Helsum, a Dutch national. The bad news…he may have to pay the Germans back for what the hoax cost them…the Germans don’t like jokes…remember Versailles?
