Woman charged with stealing identity of dead child


A Windsor woman has been charged with using the identity of a dead four-year-old for nearly two decades.

The Windsor Police Financial Crimes Unit, with the support of the Ministry of Transportation, identified a Windsor woman who had been using two separate driver's licences under two separate names.

After a lengthy probe into the backgrounds of the names on the licences, investigators discovered that the woman had assumed the identity of a four-year-old girl who had died in 1974.

Investigators allege that the woman had been using the identity of the deceased girl, Rozalia Kovacs, since 1997.

The woman is facing the following charges:

• Four counts of procuring a passport by false statement

• Four counts of possessing the identity document of another

• Possession of identity information with intent to commit fraud

• Impersonation to gain advantage

• Two counts of document forgery

• Making a false statement to procure a loan
