The Null Device

How to disappear completely: Filipo Falcone, 80, of Prince Rupert, in the north of Canada, was recently found dead in his home by burglars. It is estimated that he had been dead for nine months before anybody noticed:
"His pension cheques just kept coming and were deposited directly into his bank account and bills like his Hydro were paid by direct debit."

The time of death was estimated from the date of disconnection of the phone service; the post office stopped delivering mail to Falcone after concluding that he had moved overseas, as he said he might do.

"You can have all the programs in the world, but if people keep saying, "Keep away, keep away," there is not much you can do."
