justanotherfarkinfarker: You don't just run away and live under a bridge
spentshells: sever mental problems, she left her kids and husband. From the story and the looks of things it was best for everyone involved.
mrlewish: I'm still waiting for them to arrest the ex-husband for murder.
turbocucumber: This is an example of eyes too far apart.
JerkStore: So she has now screwed her family twice. Once when she left, and now they're going to have to figure out how to give back all that life insurance money that probably paid for kids' college educations, the mortgage and other things that are no so easy to return.But yeah, she's nuts.
Omnivorous: Her ex-husband, Lee Heist, who collected on a life insurance policy after getting the courts to declare her legally dead in 2010 and has remarriedOkay Fark lawyers, what's the hubby's responsibility re: the insurance cash?And just how do you make yourself undead after a death certificate has been issued?Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/05/02/3376125/woman-missing-since-200 2 -and-presumed.html#storylink=cpy
KAVORKA: No drugs? Uh... I am not buying that.
xoxo: She kind of sort of looked like Maid Marian in that Robin Hood movie with Alan Rickman. Or maybe not, my memory of that film is a bit hazy.
TomD9938: Goes out for a loaf of bread and never comes back.
Keys dude: I live in the Keys. We actually have homeless snowbirds -- they spend summers up north, winters down here, under the bridges, in the mangroves, etc. She just took it to the extreme.
CheatCommando: In this case, I think the insurance company's tort is against the mother, not the husband. He went through the process of having her declared dead in good faith, after all, and after a very reasonable period of time.
CheatCommando: TomD9938: Goes out for a loaf of bread and never comes back.I thought it was a ride? At least in Baltimore, jack.
BarkingUnicorn: I don't think so. Hubby did nothing wrong but he still was enriched unjustly. She had no duty to keep the insurer informed that she was alive. Hubby is on the hook unless there's some law or contractual provision that there's no take-backs in case of mistaken death certificates. He would owe the insurer a refund and his recourse would be to sue her.
