Visitor to Poe's Grave Revealed

It was a promotion designed to boost interest in the church where Poe is buried:

Now, a 92-year-old man who led the fight to preserve the historic site says the visitor was his creation.

"We did it, myself and my tour guides," said Sam Porpora. "It was a promotional idea. We made it up, never dreaming it would go worldwide."

Great story, Grandpa. Coulda used a vampire, though.
