Man inherits $362K from dad he never knew

Feb. 15, 2013 at 2:30 PM

CANBERRA, Australia, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- An out-of-work truck driver in Australia is inheriting a $362,425 estate from the father he never knew, thanks to a Supreme Court ruling.

The man, identified in court papers only as AMH, was named the sole heir of his father by the court following a DNA test that proved the deceased man, a businessman and member of the ancient Rosicrusianism secret society, was his true father, the Brisbane Courier-Mail reported Friday.

The court was told the man believed he had another father for 50 years until his mother, identified as Mrs. H, learned of his biological father's death and told him the truth.

The deceased man's niece had attempted to dispute AMH's claims in court, but the court sided with the man after the DNA test.
