636076468425698649-636064189831828136-M3R-3849-1--1-Polygraph tests on the big winner of the White Marlin Open have determined the angler and crew members lied about following tournament rules, according to court documents filed on behalf of the tournament. Polygraphs administered  on behalf of the tournament determined that Philip Heasley and others crew members of the Kallianassa, which  was announced as having the winning white marlin at the close of the tournament, were “deceitful.” Heasley, of Naples, had brought in a 76.5-pound white marlin, the sole qualifying white marlin vying for the grand prize of $2.8 million.
