Alderden claims the Oct. 15 flight was a stunt to generate publicity for the Heenes. Both Mayumi and Richard Heene placed calls claiming 6-year-old Falcon may have been inside the balloon as it drifted 50 miles across northern Colorado. The world watched with horror as the balloon landed without the boy — then worried that he may have fallen thousands of feet to his death.

My opinion is that the police messed this whole thing up.
They probably threatened to deport her, take her children away and throw her husband in jail if she didn't admit it was a hoax.
If they had just did an investigation, not leaked any info regarding the investigation and did things by the book then this thing wouldn't be where it is right now.
Their lawyer will most likely get the confession thrown out and since the search warrants were issued because of the confession all evidence gathered will be dismissed and everyone will forget the whole situation in a few months.
Thats my opinion of how this thing will play out.
