When divorced contractor Jim Davis died of a heart attack at his home in Los Angeles on April 2, 2006, he was laid to rest in a quiet ceremony, surrounded by two close family members and mortuary staff. After a funeral service at the Steward-Pearce Mortuary, his casket was buried at a cemetery in Los Angeles.
At least, that’s what it looked like. But in reality, Jim Davis may never have died. In fact, Davis may never have existed at all except as a fictional character created by two old ladies as part of an elaborate scam.
Personally, I'm just glad that they managed to find something to keep themselves busy. And at the end of the day, insurance fraud is a bit more creative than the arts and crafts classes taught at the home.
