NOTE: This pdf has been updated in response to new discoveries (thank you to those who pointed out new observations to me) – including the source of image #1 and the signs that it is a photoshop. Fred, I’ll post the two similarly-cropped images here so you can see them. The top is from KHON, the bottom from KITV. Sorry they’re so small here; I don’t know how to crop the white space out in Paint on my computer. But if you copy these 2 images into Word, expand them to the same size as each other, and drag one over the other you will see the placement of everything is identical except: the missing window sash that creates the cross is missing, part of the khon2 sparkly logo is dimmed enough to not show, an extra flower and floating-in-the-air greenery has been inserted below the easel and the streaming light from the window has been changed to a brown fill that matches the brown of the top window sash to make it look like it’s a wall there instead of a window, and a different person and a larger casket have been C&P’ed in :
Conclusion: The person in the casket shown by KITV is not from Fuddy’s funeral. The image was most likely photoshopped from KHON footage at the funeral (update – it may not have been from the khon footage; more later), as revealed by errors in the photoshop. The casket at Fuddy’s funeral had a different pall and had no body inside but did have an oval bump in the middle of the casket, which I presume to be an urn. The media used at least one instance of fake footage (and maybe two) to imply that Fuddy’s was an open-casket funeral, the family was photographed in positions you would expect if there was a body in the casket, and the casket was treated as if it had a body inside. The public was most likely unaware of the deception to be carried out by the media and honored what they believed was her ashes if they got close enough to see the urn in the casket.
Here are two images of the casket from the KITV video, with a red line showing the profile of the head end of the casket being straight across:
And here’s the image from the Honolulu Diocese, with a red line showing the profile to be two-tiered:
I’ve tried to figure out how that top tier fits with the hinge mechanism and I don’t understand it, unless it’s a piece of attached cloth that folds down out of the way when the lid closes. I don’t know what it is, but I know that the Diocese photo shows that when the lid is open that two-tier profile is there. It doesn’t match the straight-line profile of the open caskets in the KITV video.
