France wrongly declares woman dead
Jeanne Pouchain learned she was dead when she read a letter from a court of appeal stating she had died and asking her relatives for money she owed. “I’m alive for my husband, for my son, for my loved ones, for the people around me, but for the justice system, I’m dead,” she said. The ruling was made in 2017; since then, she hasn’t had a social security number, can’t drive and won’t shop in case she needs ID.
