73 year old Arthur Gerald Jones is a member of an almost extinct group of individuals. One that I believe can no longer exist with today’s technology and linked systems of information. Arthur Jones might very well be one of the last people to ever have “vanished” from his home, leaving his wife and kids, to start a new life across the country. In 1979 Arthur ditched his flesh and blood in Chicago, traveled to Florida, then California, and eventually settled in Las Vegas. In 1986 his missing person case was closed and he was pronounced dead. Arthur Jones had purchased documents that would allow him to obtain a state issued ID under the name of Richard Sandelli, and he has been living under that name for the past 32 years. Throughout most of history, I would imagine it would have been relatively easy to disappear and start a new life. Not anymore. We are tracked with all sorts of information from bills and credit lines, to the identification items in your wallet. And background check are a cinch. You may be able to find a little safe haven somewhere outside of the country, but not here. Arthur was caught when the real Richard Sandelli disputed income from a Vegas casino on his social security statement. Not sure how that came to light after 22 years of employment, but nonetheless, here we are now. So, Arthur Jones can now go back and say hello to the wife that had assumed she had been widowed, and kids that presumably had been orphaned. I am sure they will be glad to see him. Also, does he get to break the news that they have to pay back the $47,000 they received in social security benefits after his death? Cause that conversation would be awkward.
