Family disputes Dayton man’s Batman story

DAYTON — Multiple family members of a man who was dressed up as Batman have reached out to this newsroom to say his story is not true.

“He has three children, they are all girls. He has never had a son. He has never had a child that has had cancer. This is all a fraud. Period,” said Lisa Climmons, Shane’s aunt.

Several other family members have reached out to our newsroom also saying the story is a fraud.
