The Slovak police and Interpol found a Slovak who pretended to be dead in Mexico after nine years of searching. They discovered him in Mexico.

In 2010, when a charge was brought against a 55-year-old man identified as Oliver B. due to fraud, he decided to change his name to Oliver Ramon G. and flee, the police wrote on Facebook.

When a district court issued an arrest warrant in 2013, Oliver Ramon G. was already hiding in Belize. As soon as he learned about the arrest warrant, he allegedly asked for a death certificate.

After the court declared him dead, the police ended their search.

The resurrected man

However, the Mexican branch of Interpol has recently revealed that Oliver Ramon G. actually moved illegally to Mexico. There, he changed his name to David Cruz Manzanero.

Hence, the court has already “brought him back to life”, and the police have reissued the arrest warrant.

Oliver B. was deported from Mexico on August 26, 2019. He is now in detention in Vienna, waiting for extradition to Slovakia.
