The Legend of the Poe Visitor

Every January 19, a shrouded visitor lays three roses and a bottle of cognac on the grave of Edgar Allan Poe. After worldwide publicity, someone has finally come forward to explain the mystery, or have they?

I don't understand why it's being called a hoax. I mean, nobody really thought it was actually Poe's ghost, did they? I assumed everyone thought, as I thought, that it was a fan who wanted to pay Poe tribute. If the tribute had the additional, or even primary, goal of getting publicity and funds, that doesn't faze me in the least. The only thing that fazes me is that Mr. Porpora would spill the beans. If he really had "love for the story," he wouldn'ta done it.
