Lional Campbell's son, Michael, died of acute meningitis at the age of three 25 years ago. However, Campbell is still paying child support for him to this day, Channel 7 Action News reports.
Originally from Detroit, Campbell now lives in Kentucky. In 2011, he began questioning why he was still paying child support on a child who died back in 1988. At first, he said he never questioned the payments because he thought they were for an older son he fathered with Michael’s mother. He was born seven years before Michael and is now 34-years-old.
That he lives several states away is making his fight to clear his name even more difficult. “It took a lot out of me,” Campbell said.
