The man said he was Lt. Cmdr. Roy Antigua, and he sat next to the chief in a special section for officials.
"Everybody around there thought that he was the real deal," Steffens said.
But it turns out Antigua is a man of many identities and disguises, none of which appear to be real, authorities said.
"We need to know, from start to finish," Steffens said at a news conference Monday, "who is Roy Antigua?"
This is really spooky. At first I was thinking this guy was a spy or something but it seems he might just be some sick guy who gets a thrill out of fooling people into thinking he’s someone he’s not.
Any guesses about who Roy Antigua is or why he might have been doing this?
