Report: Tucker Blandford, of Stamford, faked death to end engagement

A Stamford man reportedly faked his own death to avoid marrying a woman he met at UConn. 



British tabloid the Daily Mail reports Tucker Blandford, 23, admitted to impersonating his parents and calling his bride-to-be in the U.K. to tell her that her fiance had committed suicide.



Blandford reportedly told a reporter he got scared and did not know how else to end the engagement.



The two were supposed to get married last week.
