Queens Man Hid Dad's Death for Social Security, Pension Money

A Queens man left his dad's body in a morgue for over a year so he could collect his pension and social security payments.

Christopher Bunn, 49, is expected to pay full restitution on the $7,542 in pension payments and $17,790 from social security that he illegally collecteded. Bunn is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday.

Bunn pleaded guilty in October to grand larceny and petit larceny. He has already served six months in prison.

New York State Comptroller Thomas Dinapoli said the money had been electronically deposited into a checking account in the name of Bunn's father.
