But what do we have here? An obituary published by The Hartford Courant on February 23rd, 2014:

Connor D. Betts, 22, of Suffield passed away suddenly Wednesday, February 19, 2014

[..]

He was a 6’3″ teddy bear known as “Baby” by his “Mama.” Along with his mother Connor is survived by his four siblings, Colleen Rodriguez and her husband Alfredo; Megan Betts; Brian Betts; and Kathryn Betts all in Suffield.

Tribute video posted by Connor’s father:

How strange… Two different Connors with two different sisters Meghan, the same family name, similar facial features, and the same blue eye color. One Connor who was 6’3″, one Connor who was described as tall. One Connor who lived in Suffield, one Connor who shot people dead a 3-hour drive from Suffield.

Not only that — an unknown party has been scrubbing away the obituaries of the Connor who died in 2014. Now, they can only be accessed through the internet archives that will likely get cleaned up as well.

But no. These are totally different people. Or the zombies have risen — and they brought rifles. Or the shadow men scrape obituaries for inspiration when naming their characters.
