Is it possible to fake your own death and successfully evade the police and start your life over under a new identity?
I'm curious about this, I'm doing a research paper for school and I want to know if this is possible. Is it possible to pull this off ?

Yes. The classic way is you go to a grave yard and find the stone of a kid who died that would be about your age now. Then you get a copy of the kid's birth certificate. Then you use that to get other ID. Eventually you can assume the identity of the kid. It is harder now because they require a kid to have a social security number and when the kid dies it is reported. But you could go to Canada and pull it off.

It’s very illegal, but sometimes people get away with illegal stuff.

Not really now with technology.

If the police are looking for you probably not unless you move to a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty. But if you're someone that no one is looking for in the first place and if you avoid any kind of high profile activities this might be possible.

Now you're expecting everyone to believe that your idea is strictly for research purposes? Sure...

Is it possible? Yes. Is it easy? No. Is it cheap? It would be very pricey.

U.S. marshals on the Witness Protection Program do that almost every day.
Whitey Bolger did that for many years
Just today an escaped criminal was found after almost 50 years on the run.
D.B. Cooper, the Zodiac Killer and the guy who butchered the "Black Dahlia" (Elizabeth Short) have never been found.
