(CBS) – The Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax story just took a turn down a very weird road.

In anticipation of Katie Couric’s interview with Te’o, her show released three voicemails left on Teo’s phone that were believed to be from Lennay Kekua – the girlfriend who never actually existed. The voicemails were taken down minutes after being published.

Today, however, the New York Daily News reported that the hoax mastermind Ronaiah Tuiasosopo – using a falsetto voice – was the person behind the phone calls.

Listen to the voicemails below.

The third voicemail is reportedly right before one of Kekua’s fictitious chemotherapy sessions.
