Man jailed for stealing dead baby’s identity

A man who assumed the identity of a dead baby over 20 years ago — a ploy made famous by the Frederick Forsyth novel “Day of the Jackal” — was jailed for 21 months on Tuesday.
For over two decades the man who called himself Christopher Buckingham lived a relatively uneventful life, marrying and having children.
But he still refuses to reveal his real identity and even his family do not know who he is.
