The man who impersonated Terry Davis and ran the profile that has since been "memorialized" at Facebook finally reappeared and responded to my request for comments and explanations. Somewhat, anyway. The following is the entire conversation chain through Twitter DM unedited:

Philip:

Deleted your discord server?: LOTS of folks asking questions. I'm making notes for a second part in the Goldwater coverage. All about the rumors of malfeasance, stolen donations and how you managed to convince Terry's family that you were him.

Would you like to make a comment before it goes live?

TheTemple:

Hi dude. I understand its live, I don't really care. I created the account just incase something happened to Terry it is as simple as that. I was concerned I and wanted to create a account just in case if shit hit the fan. I first added Therese and all the family added me via their accounts. I didn't reply to any DM's on the account from Family members. They account was made with the best intentions and made because I was worried that something could happen during the Winter and that Terry may need help.

In terms of the donations, I never had control over the website. I just uploaded old videos of Terry and linked the donation link which is featured on the website.

if you have any more questions? I would be glad to answer them.

Philip:

I just don't understand how you did it "out of concern." So at no point did you let the family know you were NOT the real Terry?

Thanks for responding, just the fact that you haven't fully disappeared looks good. I know there's a lot of angry folks in 8chan threads and kiwifarms, I was about convinced you'd blown the coop.

TheTemple:

No not at all, I didn't DM anyone. I disappeared because I just couldn't really take all this bullshit and plus I was drinking when I found out about Terry and I've been working off a hangover.

Philip:

So you got DMs from multiple family members who thought you were really Terry? Do you know if it was family or a fan who requested your profile be memorialized?

TheTemple:

No idea, I signed off the Facebook account after doing that screen rerecording showing the facebook page. What happened after that I have no idea about. I didn't receive any facebook notifications on my E-mail account about it.

E-mail notification from the E-mail connected to the facebook

Philip:

Why did you delete the discord server? Heard rumors it was related to you being doxed. Just trying to confirm the reason. Deleting the server and disappearing for a day and a half really didn't help with the rumors.

TheTemple:

I have no idea about stuff related to my dox. I deleted it because It just got overwhelming. Obviously. not the best move because it looks like I was hiding which to be honest I was because everything is so crazy.

Philip

Some people were saying they interacted with your Terry profile on FB. Why did you pose as him for four months? Did you tell anyone that it was really you?

TheTemple

No like I said the facebook was just made in case if shit hits the fan. I had very little interaction with anyone. I few people spammed the account and I blocked them.

Philip:

So you didn't return any DMs from friends, family or fans? Your profile was fairly believable it's not surprising a lot of people (family included) believed it was him.

TheTemple:

Yes, I did not return any dms from friends and family.

Philip:

Some folks on the chans are now saying that a number of people stepped into helper roles in maintaining different facets of his online persona. Do you know anything about this? Any idea what happened to t Sheikhs?

TheTemple:

What I heard was he was getting shit from /g/ about scamming Terry from donation money and he left discord without saying anything. He did post a screencap of what said and then left.

TheTemple:

From my interactions with him, I don't know if this is true or not. He seemed like a nice guy who helped terry

Philip:

I guess I can understand that. Terry's fanbase can be a bit rabid at times even if it's split between those who seem to genuinely care for his well being and a few trolls who just want to see a meltdown (the folks who faked the whole Dianna thing for instance).

Who from his family reached out to you besides his mother?

TheTemple:

That was the only dm that I received from the family, she sent it a month ago. Like I said I didn't reply to any messages from the family.

Philip:

You say you did this all out of concern, but did you ever consider that since they thought you WERE Terry you were possibly lulling them into a false sense of security. They assumed he was posting/happy etc. due to your profile?

Also did you consider that it might be hurtful to his mother to think her son was ignoring her message when it was obvious (apparently obvious) the account was active?

TheTemple:

I agree It was pretty Shitty looking back into it but I did create the account out of concern. I'm obviously going to have to live with that mistake.

Philip:

As per doing this out of concern, how did joining Facebook groups pretending to be Terry accomplish that?

TheTemple

I wanted to create a account just in case if something happened to Terry that was my logic but obviously that happened and we didn't know anything about because it wasn't posted by terry that he was in trouble.

TheTemple:

I agree with everyone, its fucking retarded

Philip:

You said you talked to Terry's old boss at the printer ink cartridge company was that as yourself or in the Terry Davis persona? Also, what was teh deal behind the Revenge of the Cis Joe Rogan death prank you seemed to promote on your Twitter feed not long ago.

TheTemple:

Meh the joe rogan thing was a joke that I posted after I watched a livestream and one of the watches of the stream posted it.

Philip:

You're saying "in case something happened" then you mention "we didn't know anything because it wasn't posted by Terry." How would impersonating Terry online help you determine Terry was in trouble? This part here is still kind of confusing for me.

TheTemple:

By posting something at family members if something went wrong. When Terry went homeless in Portland he lost everything including his phone and computer meaning if he needed help he didn't have any means in contacting his family.

Philip:

If he had no way of contacting family how would he contact you to spread the word though? How did posting Bible verses and Physics Girl updates accomplish anything positive for Terry?

TheTemple:

I only posted a couple of things to try and get the family to join.

or add the terry acount.

Philip

You didn't just post a couple of things though, you posted for months semi-regularly. And you apparently DID get 19 family members to friend your spoofed account.

How did joining Facebook groups help you get friended bythe family?

TheTemple

The family added Terry to the groups.

Philip

And you interacted in them in order to continue perpetrating the charade or…?

TheTemple

No i didn't interact, the only interaction that I had is adding Terry to the account after terry was added into the family facebook group.

I did interact in a way.

Ok I think I'm finished answering questions,

I'm sorry you don't necessarily see my point of view but this is the last that I will mentioning his.

this*

Philip:

Right, definitely, copy/pasting code, etc. So if I check and see when the alst (*last) of his family added you and then check that against the last of your posts then I'll be able to note that AFTER you had several (19 was it?) family members added you stopped "interacting as" Terry?

Philip:

Ok, I'll check those dates and drop you a link when the next piece goes live

Unfortunately for those seeking answers, the above conversation doesn't reveal much. There are some more striking inconsistencies however. In the conversation he mentions having logged out of the fake FB account and not being able to access it after that but this is contradicted by his earlier claims in the recording by betterthanrealismelephant from the now deleted Discord server. It's also still unclear when comparing the recording to his latest claims whether or not Terry's family actually knew it was a fake account. It's also noteworthy that in both cases he gives very vague explanations of his actions (in essence, impersonation and stalking) as being done "out of concern." He says he didn't respond to DMs despite not clarifying if he was speaking as himself or "as Terry" when he reached out to a former employer.

Betterthanrealism had the following to say:

"His comment about Terry's family adding him to groups is damning as well for several reasons.For one, he was in groups that people from KiwiFarms were in, not just groups Terry's family was in. It also proves that he pretended he was the real Terry the entire time to Terry's family. Why would they add a fake account to facebook groups that only his family was part of?"

Regardless of Terry's status, this pile of filth needs to be brought to justice.

Shut the fuck up Pajeet. Spamming this shot will never get you a gorlfriend nor will you ever get laid you smelly shitskinned subhuman piece of shit. I really hope you're walking down the streets in that slum you call India one day and end up slipping on a turd not cleaned by the poo patrol and as a result you crack your head open and bleed out and nobody does shit because your "people" leave corpses lying around like it's a normal thing yet all fucking traffic comes to a halt and you poos get on your knees as soon as a fucking cow crosses your path. I would tell you to poo in loo but instead you should try to fit your entire body into the toilet because you are a literal piece of shit. /pol/ will never help you /cow/ will never help you and nobody here gives a fuck about you or helping you. If you stopped spamming this garbage and went outside once in a fucking decade maybe you could find a gf but probably not considering you are still a literal piece of shit. Poo in loo and go fuck yourself pajeet. Your mom should've never opened bobs and showed vagene to your turd of a father.

Get fucked.
