“Social media is changing people’s lives.” It’s become sort of a worn-out expression. The way people interact and communicate online is an interesting phenomenon, but recently a woman in California had her life changed by a simple search on Facebook.
In 1995, this woman’s children disappeared. Their father had taken them and vanished. The two children, a three-year-old girl and a two-year-old boy were never heard from again.
Until now. The children are now teenagers, aged 16 and 17. The mother searched for her daughter’s name on Facebook…and found her. The children and their father, Faustino Utrera, were living in Florida.
San Bernardino Deputy District Attorney Kurt Rowley said:
Former child star Gary Coleman, who died last week at the age of 42, was secretly divorced two years ago. The news has spread from Utah, where Coleman died, across the country, from California to Florida.
Divorce lawyer Randy S. Kester filed the divorce papers. The divorce was finalized on August 12, 2008. The divorce petition cited “irreconcilable differences” between Coleman and his ex-wife, Shannon Price, 24.
The divorce decree was sealed in Fourth District Court in Provo, Utah.
People who knew Coleman were surprised to learn that he was divorced, because he and Price continued to live together, at least off and on. Price was living with Coleman at the time of his accidental fall in his home and subsequent death. Contact Lowenthal and Abrams to learn more about these types of cases.
