    Missing In Action

    We could get into an extended discussion on deaths that fit in multiple threads, but that's standard for a lot of people who have passed. As for this thread, as far as I know, the only qualification was that someone was reported missing, even if posting here comes after they''ve already been found.

    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    Already a highly competitive year and we're barely into March. Jean-Pierre Pernaut wasn't just a name I landed on for the Deathlist Cup, I also had him in the Alt Obituaries Deadpool. I see at least one other person had him and I suspect others may have, as well. Edit: Pernaut is a duet.

    Deathlist Cup 2022

    If it helps, I completely missed CW McCall's hospice care news . But, I did sneak my joker, Howard 'Pepper' Martin, in as a unique. (A single mid-February interview revealed he's getting hospice care for lung cancer.) We'll see if it gets me anywhere.

    He can't talk, he's eating dinner with 'Uranian' forces. I'm surprised he didn't say Uranium forces. Or Iranian forces.
