Paul Walker is not alive, but that hasn’t stopped some people from speculating that the late actor didn’t actually die in a car crash.

People on Twitter and Facebook have been commenting on the fact that some people think he’s alive.

“So apparently there’s a possibility that Paul Walker faked his death.. regardless of reasoning, I’d just be happy he’s still alive,” said one Twitter user.

“People keep saying Paul Walker is alive… why would he want to fake his own death?” added another.

“So uh Paul Walker is still alive,” added another.

The death hoaxes have spread through multiple outlets, including a website called nodisinfo. The story on that website claims that Walker’s family members, including his longtime girlfriend Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, are helping cover up that Walker–and Roger Rodas, who died with Walker–isn’t actually dead.

The website also claims that there’s photographic evidence that Walker is alive.

Another death hoax that spread the day before Walker’s death had some people thinking that Walker was still alive.

Walker died in a car crash on November 30 in Valencia, California. Rodas was driving the car.
