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.
