    NJ - Up to 12 wives in a half-dozen states.

    Estranged for five years from family who were convinced her husband was a con man and bigamist, Joyce Reynolds yesterday began reassembling the tattered pieces of her life after learning her husband had up to 12 wives in a half-dozen states.

    Stevens said Reynolds was "despondent" and an "emotional wreck" after learning her supposed husband was a serial bigamist and a suspected con man, and that their marriage of four years may not have been legal.

    Reynolds' family became suspicious a few years ago when they couldn't confirm Barber's story that he was a pediatric cardiologist on leave who just happened to take a job as a car salesman.

    And some of Barber's partners in a fugitive-tracking business had become suspicious after he told them he'd been married to Reynolds for 39 years even though she's only 49.

    His bogus life story finally fell apart when he was arrested on a minor traffic charge last week, and cops began questioning him about a $50,000 child support claim an ex-wife had filed against him in Morris County.

    Authorities say Barber has 24 known aliases, several different Social Security numbers, and has done jail or prison time in Kansas, California, Texas and Missouri.

    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?

    Here's another link with what was said in court recently:

    http://www.dailyrecord.com/news/arti...ws4-bounty.htm

    A bounty hunter from Wharton, who is charged with getting married in 2001 under a false name, scammed three women in Missouri out of their savings, forged U.S. Treasury checks, committed bigamy and feigned leukemia and heart disease to get out of trouble, authorities and relatives said on Thursday.

    William Michael Barber, 53, of Pine Street was brought before two Superior Court judges in Morristown on Thursday afternoon, around the time that Joyce Reynolds, the woman he married in January 2001, was signing herself out of a hospital that she entered last week in distraught reaction to learning of his past.
