Faking Your Death

Professor Berry has a great (and odd) post about why people fake their own death.

Sometimes people fake their own deaths to escape marriage or criminal prosecution or to collect life insurance. In a recent case, John Darwin escaped financial difficulties and was believed lost at sea. His wife collected on two insurance policies. But five years later, Darwin returned “smelling dreadful” and ultimately was discovered and arrested.***

That “smelling awful” line is great… I don’t know what it means but its just great.

Former congressional candidate Gary Dodds was recently convicted of faking his own death in New Hampshire, with the possible motive of gaining a sympathy vote.***

This stuff is awesome. I love practicing in this area. You can’t make this stuff up!

Thanks Professor.
