Here's a brilliant scheme to get out of paying child support. Police: Man faked death to avoid child support
'Ultimate deadbeat dad' now owes more than $30,000 for two kids
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Police arrested a man accused of faking his death more than 25 years ago to avoid paying child support.
Johnny Sterling Martin, 58, had a relative call Family Court in 1979 and report that he died during a bar fight in Alabama, authorities said. That call came a few months after he escaped from a work detail while serving a one-year jail term for failing to pay $4,120 in support for two children.
