Man Falls to Death in Skydiving Accident After Losing Monkey Twin Brother
Twin Brothers Cameron and Carmichael Stillson ???
30-year-old Cameron Acel Stillson, animal rights activist and twin brother to Carmichael Stillson, a hybrid-human and macaque monkey, plummeted to his death late Wednesday evening after failing to pull the ripcord to his parachute during his weekly skydive.
Stillson, who according to family and friends, had been suffering from depression during the past month after his twin-brother Carmichael, went missing after a heated argument that took place between him and Stillson. Stillson later organized a search party and spent fruitless man hours in search of his lost pet brother.?

Stillson, who has faked injuries after every single one of his 127 skydive jumps, arrived Wednesday evening eager and ready to make his first solo-jump. "He kept complaining of stomach pains from a bag of bad monkey seed he had just eaten,"stated Will Shrout, Stillson's skydiving instructor. After the failed skydive Stillson was met by paramedics who found Stillson alive and clutching a photograph of his monkey-brother with the words "FIND HIM" written in red crayon. After several hours of appearing to be dead, Stillson awoke and returned home, alluding police and medical examiner questioning. Stillson was later arrested for faking his death and stated, "I just wanted to find my brother". Stillson is currently being held without bail in the Weber County Jail.
