The farm where Eric Corbett lived under the false identity Jubal Burke. (U.S. District Court files.)
updated  A man with a Southern accent and an odd name, Jubal Burke, moved to North Idaho some 17 years ago and embedded himself into the Elmira community. But that simple life unraveled in September when federal agents raided the farm and unmasked Burke: His name is Eric L. Corbett, a 45-year-old Georgian who was convicted of felony witness tampering in Florida and then vanished after he walked out of a federal prison in Mississippi in April 2000.
