Death by forgery: case shows how not to conduct advance care planning

This is one of those completely odd news stories that just make me shake my head. According to a story from the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys, a Missouri woman is being accused of 1st degree murder and forgery. The murder weapon: her father’s power of attorney, allegedly forged, naming herself as the agent. The actual murder: directing that her father’s life-sustaining medical treatment be discontinued. The accused, Susan Elizabeth (“Liz”) Van Note has pleaded not guilty to the charges. I'm very glad that my own law practice has had very few of this kind of client!
