“This is the worst news I could ever hear about my young son who had plans on being a artist and a basketball player, Lincoln wrote on the fundraising site. “His life was taken due to a senseless act of violence.

Court orders man to pay $2M in child support in 'bizarre' case involving identity theft

Hamilton County Superior Court Magistrate William Greenway and Judge Jonathan M. Brown said Richard J. Hoagland owes his ex-wife -- Linda K. Iseler -- more than $1.86 million, including nearly $1.4 million in interest charged to payments he should have been making since 1993, according to court documents.

Hoagland had been considered dead since 2003, according to court documents.

According to court documents, Hoagland, 63, abandoned his family in December 1993 and moved to Pasco County, Florida. He lived under the name of Terry Jude Symansky and remarried in December 1995. He and his Florida wife, the former Mary Hossler Hickman, had a child together. Hoagland also bought property that included at least one airplane, according to court documents. The family lived in Zephyrhills.

Hoagland was arrested in Florida in July 2016 on a charge of fraudulent use of personal identification, the Journal Gazette reported.

The real Terry Symansky drowned in Florida in 1991 at age 33. He was from Cleveland, moved to Florida and became a commercial fisherman, The Tampa Bay Times reported in 2016. 

“Bizarre,” Tom Markle, an attorney who represents Iseler -- known in 1993 as Linda Hoagland -- told the Journal Gazette.

Hoagland’s secret double life was unraveled thanks to Ancestry.com, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco told the Times in 2016.

A nephew of the real Symansky, working on a genealogy project, was shocked to see a Florida marriage license issued in his uncle’s name four years after his death. His uncle had never been married.

Authorities were contacted in April 2016 and Hoagland was arrested three months later.

After Mary Hoagland found out about her husband’s real identity, she told Nocco that she found his real identification documents in a briefcase in the attic, the Times reported. She also found a deed to property in Louisiana her husband bought in 2015, and a key to a storage unit.

Richard Hoagland is living in Indianapolis and was recently released from jail in Citrus County, Florida, Markle said.

Hoagland's attorney, Paula J. Schaefer, of Indianapolis, has not commented on the case, the Journal Gazette reported.

A hearing is scheduled for July 19.

Sports gambling: NFL commissioner calls for congressional action

A week after the Supreme Court struck down a federal law prohibiting wagering on sports, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell issued “four core principles” the league would like to see addressed by Congress. 

>> Read more trending news

Goodell outlined the principles in a statement Monday:

  1. There must be substantial consumer protections; 
  2. Sports leagues can protect our content and intellectual property from those who attempt to steal or misuse it; 
  3. Fans will have access to official, reliable league data;
  4. Law enforcement will have the resources, monitoring and enforcement tools necessary to protect our fans and penalize bad actors here at home and abroad.

Additionally, Goodell said the league has “spent considerable time planning for the potential of broadly legalized sports gambling” and is prepared to address changes “in a thoughtful and comprehensive way.”

>> Supreme Court strikes down federal law prohibiting sports gambling

Whether or not lawmakers take these thoughts into advisement remains to be seen, though the first and last seem like common sense suggestions while two and three are more the responsibility of the league. 

The Supreme Court ruled by a 6-3 vote last week that, in 1992, Congress lacked the authority to pass the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act. The New York Post reported. The act banned states that did not already allow legal sports betting from sanctioning it.

Alabama man wants to cut lawns in all 50 states

Cutting lawns during the summer can be a chore, especially when temperatures and humidity rise. But an Alabama man not only enjoys cutting grass, he also wants to mow in all 50 states.

>> Read more trending news

“I’m on a journey called ‘50 States, 50 Lawns,’” Rodney Smith told WHAS. “(I’ll be) mowing a lawn in each state for someone who's elderly, disabled, a single parent mother or veteran.

Smith has done yardwork in four states so far, he told WHAS.

Smith, who lives in Huntsville, Alabama, but is originally from Bermuda, admitted that as a youth he did not like to cut grass. However, a chance encounter with an elderly man changed his perspective.

"It was on a hot, sunny August day and he was struggling, so I pulled up and helped him out and he really appreciated it," Smith told WHAS. "And I realized that this is something that so many people deal with."

It was that encounter that led Smith to create the Raising Men Lawn Care Service, which helps needy people by cutting their lawns for free.

Sunday, Smith was in Louisville to mow the yard of a woman who had recently lost her husband.

"I came to release some stress off her back by mowing her lawn," Smith told WHAS.

Smith’s business goal is to encourage youths to pitch in and help neighbors in need. He has set a goal of 50 lawns for each youth, WHAS reported.

"Once they reach 50, we fly to them and we do lawns with them and we also surprise them with a brand new lawn mower," Smith said.

According to Smith, 12 boys have completed the 50-yard challenge.

There are more than 100 kids involved in the Raising Men Lawn Care Service in the United States and there are also participants in Canada, Bermuda and England, WHAS reported.
