Thomas Prusik-Parkin

Thomas Prusik-Parkin, of Brooklyn, has spent the last 6 years pretending to be his dead mother.

[Editor’s Note: The New York Post is already calling Prusik-Parkin the Brooklyn Psycho, which is a good sign for the story, since a catchy nickname is all-important with this sort of thing. Not only did Prusik-Parkin wear a wig and nail polish to impersonate his dead mother and collect Social Security - he also apparently kept a casket in his living room.]
