HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY
Have you ever thought about disappearing? Wiping out
your old identity and starting fresh, with a new name, a new life
a new self? In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, how to
disappear completely. Join us for a crash course! You too can vanish without
a trace. And, the founder of the Federal Witness Protection Program on
how the professionals do it.
Have you ever thought about disappearing? We'll explore
how people do it. We start with an expert - Frank Ahearn. His
new book is "How to Disappear: Erase Your Digital Footprint, Leave
Fale Trails, and Vanish Without a Trace." He's a former skip tracer,
and tells Steve Paulson how that works.
If you really want to know how to disappear, you might
want to talk to the U.S. Marshall Service, which runs the Federal Witness
Protection Program. Gerald Shur has just written a book about
its founding called "WITSEC: Inside the Federal Witness Protection
Program. He tells Jim Fleming how he got it started. Keren David
is a young adult author who has imagined just what that kind of life
might mean. Her novel "When I Was Joe" chronicles the life
of a 14 year old boy who's living it. She tells Anne Strainchamps about
it. Also, Optical Physicists at the Imperial College in London have
created blueprints for the perfect hiding place. Paul Kinsler,
one of the study's authors, explains to Steve Paulson how they carved
a hole out of space-time.
David Bond got scared when he received a letter
from the government saying they'd lost his newborn daughter's data.
If they could lose that, he thought, what else might they lose. He decided
to see if he could disappear himself, and put together a film called
"Erasing David." He tells Jim Fleming what happened.
