Man Denies he is Dead

by duncanr

hal_coffinDonald Eugene Miller Jr, who disappeared in 1986, was declared legally dead in 1994

His attempt recently to have the state legally recognise he is still alive, however, was rejected

The judge hearing his application ruled that – despite Mr Miller appearing to be in robust good health – the 3 year period after a person is declared legally dead, during which they can appeal againt that decision had, in his case, long since passed –

The late Mr Miller, then, must remain late because he was too late in appealing the declaration that he was late

Hhmm, awkward !
