Ohio judge declares man legally dead – Sitting in a courtroom asking for your death decision to be reversed doesn’t even seem to be enough for one man that despite being very much alive has been ruled to still be legally dead! WTF!
Ohio judge declares man legally dead
Donald Miller Jr. has found that death is pretty final, something most of is know. The thing is, he isn’t dead… Well wait, he is dead in the eye of the law!
Donald disappeared from his family many years ago. He says because he lost his job and was an alcoholic and other stories say it was because he had mounting child support billls.
After nothing turned him up he was declared legally dead. The declaration of his death happened in 1994.
On returning to Ohio 8 years later his parents told him of the tragedy of his death! In an attempt to reverse this so he could go back to doing normal things, like get a driving license he decided to go to court to battle the decision.

However because of a 3 year rule on the death being overturned he has to legally remain dead! Here are some of the comments of the Hancock County Probate Court Judge Allan Davis from the Huff Post’s report on this very bizarre story:
He said it’s a”strange, strange situation.”
And “We’ve got the obvious here. A man sitting in the courtroom, he appears to be in good health,”
And “I don’t know where that leaves you, but you’re still deceased as far as the law is concerned,”
So if the judge doesn’t know what he should do then that kind of leaves him in total limbo!
He is 61 now so depending on his health he could have many years left living as a perfectly healthy dead man!
How frickin weird is this story! Have you heard of anything like this happening before?
