Daughter’s Death Faked To Take Vacation
It sounds like something out of a Seinfeld episode. Faking a family member's death to take a vacation. Only this wasn't a sit-com.
A New York City school employee has lost her job over accusations she faked her daughters death so she could take a Costa Rican vacation.
She told school officials her daughter had died in Costa Rica so she could spend 2 1/2 weeks there in 2010.
The school became suspicious due to the death certificate having different text fonts and misaligned test. A Costa Rican official confirmed the document was fake. She has plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge.
