Playing dead is taking on a whole new meaning for prosecutors in Connecticut. They thought a man charged in 2004 a narcotics case in Litchfield had died, until they found him very much alive in New York.
A relative told the court in 2004 that Delacruz was dead and could not appear for trial in a drug case, according to the Register Citizen. Prosecutors plan to pursue the new charges in addition to the old ones.
In court yesterday, they asked the court to set a $1 million bond considering his past, but the judge set it a $500,000, the Register-Citizen reports.
