In my last post, I questioned whether the story being posted in sections by Oxadrenals is genuine, or merely an improvisation based on this blog.
Whether or not it is an improvisation, the latest addition describes a fascinating method used by Saul to shift his identity.
Here’s the central passage:
“Through certain contacts judiciously nourished, [Saul] learned of Lee Velis, age fifty-five, a man of independent means and solitary habits, long out of communication with relatives and lacking friends or business associates. While visiting Jakarta, the unfortunate Mr. Velis had stumbled in untimely fashion over a crack in the sidewalk and received into his skull a bullet intended to pass ten yards further into the skull of quite another man. Neither of the warring criminal syndicates involved had any quarrel with the United States, nor did they wish to provoke one. They were therefore quite grateful when Saul offered to take the accidentally assassinated man off their hands.
“He did so by becoming Velis.”
A very effective method indeed. Compared to the method of identity shifting I called “raising ghost children on the social security farm,” this technique is bulletproof. – Stephen
