Ohio judge tells man he’s still legally dead

FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) An Ohio judge says a man who stood before him in court is still legally dead.

Donald Miller Jr. was declared dead in 1994, eight years after he disappeared from his home in the northwest Ohio town of Arcadia.

Miller resurfaced about eight years ago and went to court this week to have the ruling changed.

His former wife opposes the move. She says she doesn’t have the money to repay the Social Security benefits that were paid out to her and their two children after Miller was declared dead.

The Courier newspaper in Findlay reports that she claims Miller vanished in the 1980s to skip out on child support payments.

A Hancock County judge who denied Miller’s request for a reversal of the death ruling calls it a “strange, strange situation.”

    俄州男子失踪後被判死亡 現身求”復生”被拒成活死人
    看看法官是多么的无能,一个人失踪人而不是死亡,法官却判决失踪人死亡,这就证明法官之前判决失踪死亡本来就是错误的,应该即刻通过检查鉴定失踪人的真实身份,而不是拒绝,说什么失踪人在法律上就是一个死人,失踪人他没有死亡,就必须更改,法律条纹也没有规定失踪人,不可以再出现吧?至于失踪人的妻子拿了美国的社会福利,一个是可以采取慢慢的退还,或者是就结束。相信绝大多数纳税人也不会斤斤计较失踪人的妻子领取的几年的社会福利的这一点钱吧。
