Mastermind’s Cousin Provided Voice For Te’o Hoax

The cousin of the man who masterminded the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax was the voice the Notre Dame football star talked with for months. The “New York Post” reports that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo’s cousin Tino Tuiasosopo convinced Te’o that she was the fictional “Lennay Kekua,” calling him at school, telling him she loved him and even sobbing hysterically when another young woman answered his phone, according to several of her relatives. According to the “Post,” one of Tino’s cousins recognized her voice when ABC-TV’s Katie Couric played a recording of a conversation during her interview with Te’o yesterday.
