This two page tabloid newspaper spread about actress Katy Freeway and her estranged parents, is presented as a preserved item from the Millennium Panic Pictures archives.

At first glance, it seems to flesh out some of Katy's past history and introduce some new questions. Why is Katy not speaking to her parents? Is there a dark secret in the family? But on closer inspection of the accompanying labels, doubt is cast on the authenticity of the article's claim.
