Fake ID: Suspects who helped B.C. inmate escape used images found online

Police are now saying the photos they released of two suspects who helped a B.C. inmate escape from a pre-trial facility are stock images from the internet.

“Investigators can now confirm that previously-released images of Rabih Alkhalil’s associates are stock images that do not represent the suspects themselves,” said Const. Deanna Law.

“It is believed that the suspects who helped Alkhalil escape bear close resemblance to the photos they left behind, but those images are not them.”
