Woman Fakes Daughter's Death For Costa Rican Vacation

By Polly Davis Doig, Newser Staff

Posted Jan 10, 2012 12:44 PM CST (Newser) –

Today's lesson in stupid schemes: If you're going to scam your boss for vacation time with your kid's fake Death Certificate, at least make sure the fonts match. It seems one Joan Barnett, a parent coordinator at a Manhattan school who, it's worth noting, was eligible for vacation time and summers off, decided she needed a little more downtime, reports WPIX. So, according to a recently unsealed report, she had her daughter call the school and inform them that a non-existent daughter had died suddenly in Costa Rica, and that the whole family was headed there. Upon her return from two weeks, em, bereavement leave, Barnett furnished the school with a sketchy-looking death certificate—which had mismatched fonts, causing her principal to turn it over to a school investigator.

"The fonts, there were different sized fonts, the name didn't seem to relate to Barnett," the school's investigator tells WABC. "We looked at airline records,"' he continues. "Although the death certificate said March 20, 2010, she had booked the flight in early March, so it was obvious she was going to Costa Rica for vacation." Barnett now has a lot of unexpected time off: She was fired, and later pleaded guilty to misdemeanor forgery.

I have to say, it's better than killing the child as so many are doing these days. Still low, but, not quite as bad as the, "child disappearing in the night".

This woman is a first-class creep. I could never pretend a loved one was dead for my own benefit. Fucked up.

She is guilty of being a complete spanner, a little sick too but it's not the end of the world, enjoy your food stamps.

I couldn't either. If something happened, I'd blame myself.
