US Marshals detained the man from Hong Kong, who was considered missing in one of the towers of the World Trade Center. As it turned out, Steven Chin Leung (27 years old) offered the version about his disappearance himself. As he said, he needed that in order to avoid the persecution for making a fake passport in Hawaii. In April of the year 20001 Leung was released on bail and then vanished. After the twin towers tumbled down, the guy decided to use that. Chin Leung was communicating with the law-enforcement bodies, giving himself out to be the brothers that he never actually had. His goal was to get the certificate of death – as if he died of the terror attack on September 11. Steven printed out an email, which said that he was going to start working in a financial firm on September 4, and the office of that firm was located in the WTC. After Leung had been eventually caught, he said he was pretending to be his own brothers.
