Skip to comments.911 calls are still coming from cellphone of Katie Couric's late husband

Someone notify Shirley MacLaine, because Katie Courics dead husband appears to be making 911 calls from his old phone.
According to the New York Daily News, every Tuesday at 2 a.m. the late Jay Monahans phone line dials 911, then Couric gets an emergency call back saying help is on the way. She has notified the police and they are looking into it.
Apparently there is a prank called spoofing, where someone uses a device to hack into a phone remotely. Or, Monahans disembodied spirit is trying to order a pizza, but is too drunk to hit the right speed-dial button. Its gotta be one or the other.

But enough about Katie, what about that cell phone?
Take the battery out of the phone.
It is probably Katie Couric doing it her self. Think about it. Who else is more likely to have access to her late husband’s cell phone? Who pays the bills for the service?
So, what happened...he killed himself...right?
That is just sad.
Yet, where is the phone and why hasn’t been disconnected.
Thought of Katie loosing her Sister and Husband from cancer.
so a butt dialing joke would be out of line?
Shut it off discontinue the land line! How much more public taxpayer money is this idiot going to waste as one story says the police show up to confirm everything is ok! This is a publicity stunt nothing more as she said she even talked to the Chief of Police about it! The Girl is looney as hell!
I remember a similar Twilight Zone episode. Of course, it involved a land line not a cell phone.
How is it that a phone that old and the number associated with it is still active? You would think the number had been reassigned to other accounts twice over by now.
“Spoofing” is dialing from one phone and making it look like it’s coming from another phone by faking the Caller ID number. That phone doesn’t even have to exist any more.
Maybe Katie gets all liquored up and is making the calls; it gets her attention and as a washed up has been, she probably craves that.
LOL! Post of the day.
This is an old Twilight Zone episode. It turns out that Couric murdered her husband and now his ghost is seeking revenge.
I loathe Katie, but that’s a pretty mean prank, if true.
Most likely, her ratings on her new talk show are tanking, LOL!

Just thought I’d save you the trouble.
Is he still posting on Facebook?
I remember it too. The phone line fell into a cemetery. That is creepy.
Katie must be one sick person. Who leaves a late loved one’s phone still active? She is a member of the lame stream media, never mind.
This poor fellow has been dead for years and years. I don’t understand why his cell phone would even be active. I don’t understand what the “call back” is all about.
There something fishy in this story, I can’t see the NYPD putting up with this for even 2 weeks, much less months and years on end.
If you read the article, it explains that the hoaxers are using “spoofing”. They don’t actually have his phone.
I don’t know how to do it, but apparently there is a way to even change the way your home phone’s number shows up on someone else’s caller ID so they don’t know it’s from you or have your number when you call them.
You can make your phone look like it’s coming from any number.
