13 Notable Cases of People Who Faked Their Own Deaths

Arkady Babchenko

In 2018, Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko dramatically faked his own death with the help of Ukraine security services. A contract had been taken out on Babchenko’s life, so the security forces planned an “assassination” in his apartment, with a fake assailant and loads of pig blood. At the morgue, Babchenko cleaned up and watched the news of his death on television. Once the threat was eliminated, Babchenko revealed the truth. “We are happy that Arkady is alive and that his attempted murder was prevented,” a media watchdog group told the Guardian. Nevertheless, “everybody now feels manipulated.”
