The Italian judge found that the writing on the collar was not that of businessman Giovanni Russo who passed away in 2004, according to a UPI news report.
The news account said Russo’s original will left his estate to his sisters and his ex-wife. Several months after the death, however, the family received the dog collar belonging to Russo’s dog Delos, which had writing on the back.
Members of Russo’s family say Delos vanished in late 2004, the apparent victim of a kidnapping
The court ordered the unidentified employee to pay the cost of the five years of legal battles over the will.
