This morning on WLS/Chicago, I talked with Jim Alderden, sheriff of Larimer County, Colorado, who found himself thrust into the media spotlight yesterday because of the Balloon Boy story.

I asked him whether he think the Heene family had pulled off a hoax or media stunt, how he viewed the family, and why his department hadn’t found six-year-old Falcon during their search of the house. We also talked about what he knew about the launch, how far the balloon had traveled, and more.
