NY Police Tell Parents That Son Is Dead &Mdash; He's Not

Thursday, 29 Apr 2010 12:13 PM

 

Police told a New York family that their youngest son had been killed in a car crash with a tractor-trailer. It took 90 minutes for the parents to realize their son hadn't been in the car at all — and was at home, asleep.

Alfred and Geri Esposito were told Saturday that their son Freddy and another passenger had been killed in a collision in Pennsylvania. A trooper had found Freddy Esposito's driver's license in the hands of one of the dead men.

Older brother Chris Esposito rushed home from work to find Freddy asleep at the Bay Shore home they shared.

The deceased was later identified as 18-year-old Paul Richards of Santa Cruz, Calif. — Freddy Esposito's one-time frat brother.

The Espositos say they do not know why Richards had a copy of their son's license.
