News from the Past - July 1, 1929

This is from the Fresno Bee, July 1, 1929. Odd story.
Wealthy Inventor
Denies He's Dead

SAN FRANCISCO, July 1 - (AP) - C.B. Huley, wealthy inventor, refused to admit he is dead even though his family has arranged for his funeral. The body of a well-dressed man, answering Haley's description, washed up on Brighton Beach and was identified by Haley's relatives. The inventor was on a business trip in Los Angeles and returned to halt funeral plans.
Yeah I think that would be awkward.

"That's not me."

"But Dad, you have to understand. He's so well dressed."

Yeah a bit awkward.
