Ok, now I see where your post was supposed to go!

Was the man a criminal?
Was he never found because he chose to hide? Because he was taken against his will?
Did he drown? Did his body end up in a place that people would consider inaccesible?

Did he die? after going into hiding?
If so,
Was his death directly related to his crime?
Was it indirectly related to his crime?

Is the type of crime relevant?
Did this happen in recent times (last 50 years)?

so he was guilty of speeding? someone was looking for him? he couldn't be found? he didn't die at the time? but has subsequently died?

was the speeding offence caught on camera? detected by radar? seen by a policeman?

was he speeding in a car?

did he ditch his vehicle? disguise it? was it his own vehicle?

To avoid confusion, I took "fictional" to mean "not real", so it's not necessarily a character from literature.

ooh... shot in the dark:

anything like -- young kid drives car (like 7 -- I've seen stories where this happened). Maybe sitting on a telephone directory... speeding ensues, or an accident...

Police put out a bulletin for the "man driving car"...

But when they arrive, there's just a kid. No man was ever there.

Anything like that?

*****RECAP*****

There is a man who the Police thought was real, but did not exist.
The Police were looking for him but they couldn't find him (because he was not real).

He was convicted of traffic violations, which actually happened.

No misspelling/mishearing/misreading (OTRT)/mistyping/miscommunication.
No-one was trying to mislead anybody, identity theft not relevant.

Hints:
The Police had a name for him, and it is relevant how they determined it.
The name was not a forename and surname or an adjective and a noun.
"did someone pass on the correct name and get it wrong or were misunderstood?" This is almost correct.

*****BLOOPER*****
I'm sorry!


Was the identity of a different person given to the police? Yes

Did someone give a descriptor, such as "tall fellow", and the descriptor was mistaken as a name (as in, Mr. Tawlfallow)?

Did the informant give the information as (s)he meant to? Or did (s)he misspeak? Did the informant get his/her information wrong to begin with? Did the informant give the correct information? Was it mistaken by the recipient?

Were all informants human?
To be clear, the informants gave the correct information, but the recipients did not take down the correct information. Is this accurate?
Did the recipients misunderstand? miscommunicate with one another?
Was the mistake on the part of the recipients? Someone else (such as a receptionist or supervisor)? Something else (such as a malfunctioning telephone)?

Has the FA been cleared?
