Government seeks repayment over living 'dead' man

FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — The government wants to recoup benefits paid to relatives of an Ohio man who was declared legally dead as he stood in court providing ample evidence of his continued existence.

Donald Miller Jr. disappeared in the 1980s, and a death ruling in 1994 allowed his family to get the benefits. When the 62-year-old Miller resurfaced, saying he'd been living elsewhere, the government apparently took notice.

The Courier in Findlay ( ) reports letters shared by Miller's ex-wife show the Social Security Administration wants his two daughters to return over $47,000 to repay benefits plus interest.

The newspaper says Miller's attorney wouldn't return calls.

The Fostoria man has tried to undo his death. A Hancock County judge turned down the request last year, citing a three-year limit for changing a death ruling.
