Wisconsin: 3 relatives suspected of cashing dead mother's Social Security checks for 30 years

Three Portage County residents are accused of cashing Social Security checks of a relative who has been missing for 30 years and is presumed dead, and authorities are investigating to see whether her remains are buried on her wooded property.

If Marie Jost is still alive she'd be 100 years old. But authorities now suspect she died in about 1982, and they're accusing her son, daughter and son-in-law of continuing to cash her government checks in her absence.

Investigators believe Jost might be buried on her Amherst property. Sheriff's Capt. Dale O'Kray said Tuesday that cadaver dogs have hit upon the scent of human remains, and authorities are using heavy machinery to explore the property and dig for evidence.

"There's no indication she's been seen in the last 25 years and we have to have a starting point for where she might be," O'Kray said.

Words fail me; I just can’t understand this kind of behavior from a son and daughter, for a SSI check, or anything.

Well, maybe for a few pairs of new Nike ‘Air Jordans’... JUST KIDDING! (Sorry; me bad)

Use .45cal ACP 230gr HP Hydra-Shok...

Obviously we just aren't paying in enough to the government to allow them to monitor this situation enough to catch these people.

We just need to pay more to save more. /s

Makes you wonder about the way the SS Administration audits recipients.

Japan is discovering this a lot recently. They go in to give some award to the 110 year old person in the town, only to find out the 80 year old “child” has been cashing the pension check for ages.

I would not be surprised to find that a significant percentage of SS recipients are dead-but-unreported.

It's particularly easy with elderly immigrants: they just retire back to the old country (where a dollar buys more). The kids here forward the money, and when she dies nobody in the old country notifies the US consulate of the fact.

Let's say the old lady died at home of natural causes. They can either report the death and the SS checks stop, or they bury her privately and the SS checks continue. It's not necessarily the case that they murdered her.

This is all a big mistake. She’s still alive. Just check the voter rolls. Marie Jost has voted in every election right up to the 2008 election, where she voted for Obama.
