is still alive and his death in 1984 was a HOAX ... so says a 24-year-old woman
who claims to be his daughter ... and here's the thing -- her claim is NOT

been living as a stay-at-home dad with a wife and daughter after faking his own
death from cancer 29 years ago.
The story goes that Andy faked his death to escape the spotlight and live in
The woman's account dovetails eerily with a story Michael told during the
ceremony about a letter he found while going through Andy's stuff -- a letter
Andy wrote explaining a plan to fake his death.
As for the evidence, here's what we found:
1. When you look up Andy on the Internet database of record, there is no

2. In 2001, the database shows Andy lived in Cook County, Illinois.
3. There's another address indicating he lived in Westchester County, NY
later in 2001.
Speculations and rumors have swirled ever since Kaufman passed that his death was an elaborate hoax --
so while the woman's story is shocking, it's not entirely unbelievable.
As for when Andy plans to reveal himself, the woman said he had considered
coming out that night -- but backed out at the last minute.
