Fake Deaths

People who fake their own deaths and the reasons behind it.

Every day, newspapers are illed with stories of people who’ve died. But sometimes, the deaths aren’t for real… they’re fake!

For some people, faking your own death is a way of making money. One of the most famous recent cases was that of John Darwin. He was apparently “killed” in a canoeing accident of the coast of Hartlepool in the north of England. An extensive search found the wreckage of his canoe but no John. Later, his wife, Anne Darwin, collected a life insurance payment of £150,000. But it was all a trick and both John and Anne used the insurance money to buy a hotel in Panama. Ironically, they also wanted to organise canoeing holidays. They were eventually caught after pictures of them together in Panama were discovered.
