If you have warrants out for your arrest and you flee, would you be able to evade the police forever?

So in example, if a man has two arrest warrants for a serious crime and they then flee to another state, starts dressing as a woman and living as his female alter ego and gets an fake cover ID. Combined with a new social security number and etc. Would he be able to evade the police forever if he lives as a woman ?

    Probably not, it is really difficult to have DNA changed.

    Your OBSESSION with this absurd hypothetical would get you caught in less time than it takes to cross the state line from the state line.

    Note: Short of ID theft, any attempt to acquire a new SSN would be turning yourself in.

    In all likelyhood he would eventually be discovered by the police and taken into custody. That may take many years and if it takes place in his advanced age he will probably be jailed for the rest of his life. Doing the jail time now would presumably allow him to live out his later yearsoof life as a free man.

    Robert Durst almost managed that, until he couldn't help himself and killed again.

    You can't just get a new social security number.  But sure, hypothetically, you could try and evade for a while.

    He would have to give up ANY connection to his previous life. Social Security, taxes, phone calls, credit cards, cars, hobbies, email, and much more. Giving up DNA and fingerprints is very hard to do.

    It's very very hard to just magically appear somewhere, without a connection to a past life. How would he get a new social security number?  Fake IDs don't work when they are checked, unless you can get your mob friends to change the records in a lot of government data bases. Can be done, but very very expensive (maybe $250,000?).

    How would he escape all the security cameras that trace people these days? Facial recognition is a thing, so some major changes in face would be needed. Even just walking style is a bit unique. Add another $250,000 for surgery.

    After spending all that effort and money to get a new identity, you get blackmailed by all the people who helped you.

    There are a million places to make a mistake changing your identity.  They'd get you eventually.  Just off hand, where do you get the cash to set up the new life in the new state?  Money trails are about the easiest way to track someone.

    He/she would need to get a job and presumably be employed by a Company that takes no issue with a man dressing in women's clothing.  As long as you don't bring unwanted attention or commit any other crimes, or anyone finds out that you've got a fake ID, then perhaps you could evade the Police, but it's doubtful that you could 'pull it off' long enough to reap any benefits.

    Instead you should hand yourself in to the Police and admit to the crime you've comitted.

    It is possible.  But the criminal would have to avoid crime for the rest of his life.  If he got arrested, the police would discover the truth.  Finger prints and DNA cannot be changed.
