    Except it is there now.

    What's very strange is that the referenced obituary at Dignity Memorial seems to have disappeared. (The page is dynamic, but she doesn't show up via searches.)

    Could this be her third fake finish?

    It will be interesting to see if she gets a NY Times obit.

    Very odd person....didn't have a clue what was coming.....also probably miscalculated by 'winning' instead of a lower spot...which few would have noticed or cared much about...

    She also 'won' at a time when there was no prize money. I suspect what happened at Boston in 1980 helped ensure that various safeguards were put in before the big races awarded prize money.

    According to Wikipedia she actually died early last month.

    Almost all of the road race course cheating these days has little to do with money prizes....
