hello all. i'm currently working on a crime story, and i'm testing various scenarios. what would make someone steal someone else's identity? my idea is that something happened in the past (about 15 years ago) that made the would-be murderer change his identity to escape his previous life-then, in present day, someone recognizes him, threatening to bring his new (happy) life to a scandalous end. i have a few ideas,but nothing really satisfies me yet (maybe a scandal in the person's life?). any takers?
