NYC school employee faked daughter's death
NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City school employee forged a daughter's death certificate to get extra vacation time in Costa Rica and has since been fired, according to a report by the school system.
Joan Barnett, 58, a parent coordinator at the High School of Hospitality and Management, submitted an altered death certificate to get approved leave time in March and April 2010, according to the report by the Commissioner of Investigation. She lost her job that June after the forgery came to light.
It was first reported Tuesday in the Daily News of New York.
Laurel Wright-Hinckson, a spokeswoman for the special commissioner's office, said that Barnett refused to speak to investigators, who were "unable to ascertain if in fact she had said daughter and if she did, if this daughter did pass away."

Thankfully at her age it is unlikely that she has any minor children. It sounds like someone who just wanted to stay on the beach and thought they came up with a good excuse for taking off work.Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
