A Hawaii couple has been accused of stealing the identities of two children who died decades ago. According to court documents, the two may have been linked to the then-Soviet secret service, the KGB.
Walter Glenn Primrose and Quinn Darley Morrison reportedly lived for decades under the names Bobby Edward Ford and Julie Lynn Montague in the late 60s. They were arrested Friday in Kapolei, Oahu. Charges: Aggravated identity theft, conspiracy to commit a crime against the United States and false statement in obtaining a passport.
Prosecutors have requested that Primrose and Morrison be held without bail. The couple is at high risk of elopement.
Primrose served in the US Coast Guard for decades. He used a fake identity to obtain driver’s licenses, passports and Department of Defense identification cards. This earned him a secret security clearance in the military and later became a defense contractor.
Spicy: According to prosecutor Thomas Muhlek, both men can be seen in old Polaroid photos in KGB uniforms.
Primrose and Morrison were both born in 1955 and attended high school and college in Texas. They got married in 1980. It’s unclear from court documents why the two adopted the identities of the dead children in 1987. According to Muehleck, it is suspected that the couple had other aliases.
According to the prosecutor, when Morrison lived in Romania, the country was still part of the Eastern bloc. This was denied by his lawyer Megan Kao to Andhra News Agency.
Regarding the photos in KGB uniform, he said that his client and Primrose wore the same jacket for fun and posed for photos in it. “She wants everyone to know she’s not a spy,” Cao said. “Everything has gone too far. This is an overreach by the government.
