This disappearance came to an unexpected end!

In 1993 Linda Hoagland received a troubling phone call from her husband Richard; he urgently needed to be hospitalized. However, he never got there, and from one moment to the next there was absolutely no trace of Richard as if he had simply disappeared from the scene without a trace ...

After the phone call, Linda and her sons Matthew, 9, and Doug, 6, never saw him again. Linda and her husband Richard had been together for 11 years and neither she nor her sons knew what was going on: “He left us with nothing. 

We were devastated. ”In 2003, Richard was officially pronounced dead. Linda lived her life and eventually remarried. And then suddenly, 23 years after his disappearance, a strange discovery: Richard wasn't dead at all ...

It turned out that Richard wasn't dead at all, but had assumed the identity of another man. He traveled from his old hometown of Indianapolis to the small town of Zephyrhills in Florida, more than 1,600 kilometers away.

Terry File Photo


He remarried under the name Terry Smyanky, who once belonged to a fisherman who was killed in an accident in 1991. He had a child with his new wife. Richard “stole” Terry's identity while renting Terry's father's apartment. 

He stole Terry's death certificate after his father died. Terry's nephew revealed this secret when he wanted to find out more about his uncle. 

When he discovered that Terry was suddenly married four years after his death, 63-year-old Richard was arrested. Shortly afterward, his current wife found a suitcase with information about the true identity of her husband and decided to inform Linda Hoagland, who of course did not see this coming at all. 


In the meantime Richard has issued a statement for his actions; he wanted to divorce Linda and rather separate from her that way. Richard was convicted of fraud.
