Fracking-related house explosions, suicides and miscarriages and infant mortality in Faulkner County have been hidden, according to local human and Earth rights defenders who met with Deborah Dupré in Greenbrier in late Jan. 2013, part of a "Vampire of Macondo" national book tour.

During a "Vampire of Macondo" book signing in Faulkner Country, Concerned Citizens of Faulkner County members described deaths, suicides, miscarriages, abnormal bleeding, passing out, respiratory and neurological diseases, rashes and boils, along with house explosions and over 1400 earthquakes.

Fayetteville Shale play has been touted as an economic boom for Arkansas communities such as Faulkner. Environmental and human costs of health, safety and security rights abuses, however, overbalance these dubious financial gains.
