"Miss Earth Tots Botswana 2008 buried after mysterious death", a headline says
Miss Botswana Earth 2008 died in a mysterious illness.
That's what I thought when I first read the headline of a breaking news from a website in Botswana.
The title says, "Miss Earth Tots Botswana 2008 buried after mysterious death"
Then I continued reading the lead or the first paragraph.
"Eleven-year-old Katlo One Lore, who was crowned Ms. Earth Botswana in 2008, was buried last week Saturday, 27th June, 2008 at her home place, Kanye, following a mysterious illness."
I started to doubt the authenticity of the write up written by Gowenius Toka when I read the girl was only 11 years old. How can she be so young to compete at Miss Earth 2008?
Then I realized there was a serious error in the reporting when I verified that Botswana was represented at the 2008 Miss Earth in Manila by a 19 year-old named Nametso Ngwako.
I hope you weren't fooled too just what exactly happened to me.
