Genius criminals

Wow.  This is brilliance at work, really.

Polk County investigators said Kimberly Du, 36, faked her own obituary and forged a letter telling a Polk County judge she was dead.

. . .

The case began to unravel when investigators said Du was stopped for another traffic ticket in January, which was a month after the obituary was dated.

Handy tip of the day – if you are going to fake your own death, make sure never, ever to get caught for any wrongdoing for the rest of your life.  (via The Consumerist)
