Naked Nomad leaves multi-million dollar estate

Papua_new_guinea A man who rejected possessions and walked around Australia naked has been declared dead, leaving his sister to inherit an estate worth millions of dollars.

Victor Flanagan, also known as the “Naked Nomad”, was declared “presumed dead” in the Supreme Court in Perth last week – more than a decade after he last spoke to his sister.

The West Australian reported that a multi-million dollar beachfront property near Busselton would be left to his sister. Flanagan had inherited the property after their father’s death.

Mrs Jenkins told the court that she last spoke to Flanagan in 1996, while he was living in Papua New Guinea. He had relocated to PNG after years of wandering around outback Australia naked – except for a sarong he would wear when walking through towns and a pair of thongs for when there were too many prickles on the road.

Mrs Jenkins said loggers at a remote camp found a dying Caucasian man lying in a canoe – without any clothing – and that she believed it was her brother.

The man’s body had been buried in a mass grave in the PNG city of Lae, where other unidentified people were laid to rest, she said.
