Van Buren county man named most wanted "deadbeat dad"

VAN BUREN COUNTY, MI (WTVB) - A Van Buren County man is America’s most wanted "deadbeat dad”.   They don’t know where Joseph Stroup is, but say he owes $559,000 to the family he left in 1989.  He was ordered to pay child support, which he later got reduced to $14 a week, claiming he was jobless and disabled. A few years later he sold an internet firm for $2-million and disappeared.  That’s when he was charged and the indictment sealed so Stroup didn’t know they were after him. Federal prosecutors say after 16-years, its time to go public.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services plans to add him to their on-line list of most wanted deadbeats.
