Re: Sources for tracking down fugitive legislator

Thanks, Janet. I've done all those things except for going to the county itself and digging through local records. One newspaper story on the guy said that it was thought he had fled to Mexico. In any case, it's hard enough trying to track some obscure dude, but one who was purposefully trying to cover his tracks is close to impossible. I don't even really know what the procedure is for having someone declared legally dead. Who does that? Probate court?
