“I need proof,” Steven Jubera, a prosecutor in Hernando, Mississippi, told the Memphis TV station WREG. “I need a death certificate showing that he’s dead, because as far as I’m concerned, he’s alive.”

The curious case unfolded last week, when a woman named Esther Pilgrim claimed that Dog, born Timothy Blair, had faked his death to avoid paying tens of thousands of dollars in court ordered debts. When his death was reported, he was in the course of paying off $19,000 (£12,600) to Pilgrim, as ordered after his conviction for grand larceny. Pilgrim was one of many women Blair defrauded in an online dating scam, over which he was eventually charged with grand larceny. He was reported dead in February at the age of 46, having suffered a seizure. But all of the stories announcing the death linked back to a story at The Source, which can no longer be found at its original link, and none of them offered any solid information about where he died or how the body was discovered.
