Patient Zeta Will Take Polygraph

VAN NUYS, Calif. — Talent agent Mark Spiegler on Monday issued a challenge to HIV-infected porn star Derrick Burts, who's known as Derek Chambers and Cameron Reid, as well as Patient Zeta.

The challenge revolves around a polygraph test Spiegler wants conducted on Burts to determine whether he actually contracted the virus on a porn set.

Burts has been offered and plans on accepting the $1,000 offer to go through with the lie-detector test, he told XBIZ on Monday.

In a letter, Spiegler wrote:

"It is my opinion, and my opinion only, that Derrick Burts aka Derek Chambers aka Cameron Reid DID NOT contract the HIV virus while shooting a scene for a pornographic movie (gay or straight). In my pursuit of the truth in this case I am will to go so far as to pay for a mutually agreed upon expert to administer a polygraph test to Mr. Burts in order to determine his veracity in this matter.

"The examiner would be instructed to only ask Mr. Burts questions relating to his filming pornographic movies – as well as questions regarding whether or not Mr. Burts engaged in escorting (gay or straight). As we all know, Mr. Burts denies ever having been employed as an escort and this will give him the opportunity settle this matter once and for all.

"I just want to get to the TRUTH in this matter and, to further this quest for the truth (and in an effort to assist the public and the media in understanding Mr. Burts’ claims), I am also willing to pay Mr. Burts $1,000 in cash upon his completion of the polygraph examination – IRREGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME. Let the chips fall where they may!"
