    You're still legally dead, judge tells Fostoria man

    Donald Eugene Miller Jr. walked out of Hancock County Probate Court on Monday as legally dead as ever.

    In 1994, the court ruled that Miller was legally dead, eight years after he disappeared from his Arcadia rental home.

    The same judge, Allan Davis, ruled Monday that Miller is still dead, in the eyes of the law. Miller's request for a reversal came well after the three-year legal limit for changing a death ruling, Davis said.
    OK, a guy that everybody thought was dead showed up in court to prove that he actually existed. He lost. He is now legally "undead", and the Zombie Apocalypse has begun. LMAO.

    It appears that this is the legally correct decision based on what little information is available. For example this means that he successfully upped and disappeared and lived off the grid for a number of years. I'm assuming he doesn't actually have any I.D. He could be a foreign spy or some other individual claiming to be another person.

    Instead of chomping at the bit to blame everything on the government, look at the practical reason for why the judge decided that he should remain dead. If this man wanted to be considered "alive" then he had nearly a decade to do so and chose not to claim all the benefits associated with being a living breathing citizen of the United States.

    You're suggesting that government should be completely inflexible and never reverse their decisions. They have obvious evidence that they were wrong, they should reverse the decision. Otherwise you can't legally charge this man with any crime.

    There appear to be some extenuating circumstances - he was declared dead so his wife could collect social security benefits, and now if he becomes alive she would have to repay, but has not the funds:

    Robin Miller declined to testify on Monday.

    She said after the court hearing that Donald Miller left the state with hefty child support bills. He was scared of a jail term, she said.

    He owed about $26,000 in overdue child support by 1994, she has said.

    Robin Miller opposed his request for a change in the death ruling, because she does not want to repay the Social Security benefits. She does not have the money, she said.

    Robin Miller said it would be fine if his Social Security number was reinstated. She said she sympathizes with him, but points to his decisions.

    If the guy is standing in front of you, there is no excuse for declairing him still-dead. Thats pure bull****.

    I guess a dead person doesn't have rights, so that could backfire on him.
