Despite Lord Lucan being declared dead in 1999 following his disappearance in 1974, that hasn't stopped speculation of him being alive with possible sightings of him consistently being made.
The latest Lord Lucan suspect to come to light is of a man living in Australia, who The Mirror tracked down and gathered information on.
The British pensioner that has been identified as Lord Lucan currently resides in Brisbane, Australia and has been looked after by members of a Buddhist community as well as two Englishmen who've been acting as his carers.

The pair attended open Buddhist prayer meetings with him but were surprised by the appearance of two unknown men who observed the meetings in the corner of the room.
The elderly man is said to carry his birth certificate with him and looks at it often.
The man became stressed when he was approached and declined to see Mirror representatives as he instructed his carers to tell them: “No, I’m not Lord Lucan".
The Mirror understands the pensioner has used the names Derek and Adam in the past and had spent times in Nepal before he made the permanent switch Down Under in the 1980s.
According to The Mirror, the suspected Lord Lucan told one friend: “I used to live in Belgravia and knew members of the Royal Family. In particular, I knew Princess Margaret. But some bad things happened in London and I had to leave.”
The real Lord “Lucky” Lucan lived in Belgravia and was one of the biggest names in the British establishment.
He disappeared on December 18, 1974, after being suspected of the murder of Sandra Rivett, the nanny of his children.
On the night of the murder, Lucan wrote two letters to close friend Bill Shand Kydd, who read them out at the inquest into Rivett’s death.

Lucan had reportedly written: “I am only concerned about the children.
“If you can manage it I would like them to live with you.”
He added he was going to lay low, writing: “I will lie doggo for a while.”
There have been several “sightings” of Lord Lucan over the years, spanning different continents with the first reported sighting of Lucan coming in January 1975, as he was alleged to have been spotted in Melbourne, Australia.
