David Hampton

David Hampton, who was the inspiration for 'Six Degrees of Separation,' posed for the New York State Department of Correctional Services while serving time for attempted burglary in the mid-1980s. The consummate con man, Hampton charmed his way into New York's high society by posing as the Harvard-educated son of actor Sidney Poitier. He died alone in a Manhattan hospital in June 2003.
