When comedian Andy Kaufmsn died all too soon in 1984, many people, including Kaufman’s friends and family didn’t believe it at first. But time went on and Andy never resurfaced, so it finally was assumed he was really gone. However, according to his brother, Andy left a note before he died, saying he was planning on faking his death, and to prove it, he would meet his brother at a particular restaurant in 1999. When Andy’s brother Michael showed up at that place and that time, there was no Andy, but there was something stranger… another letter, waiting for him, saying that Andy was enjoying living a life of obscurity and would not be resurfacing. And so, 29 years later, the mystery continues. And why is Michael Kaufman just now revealing this? Has Andy died for real this time?
