As per the reports published by a local magazine in Ecuador, Byron Castillo is heard in a recording making an admission that he was born in 1995 rather than in 1998, which is mentioned in his Ecuadorian birth certificate. Castillo revealed an Ecuadorian businessman gave him a new identity after he left Colombia to pursue a career in football. 

Castilo has been investigated for several offenses, including alleged phony identities and an apparent cover-up by the Ecuador Federation. As per sources, his original birth name is Bayron Javier Castillo Segura. FIFA started the investigation in April after the Chilean FA protested the player's nationality.
