The Search for Tim Dog After His "Death"
SOUTHAVEN, Miss.–Dead or not, Mississippi cops want to talk to Timothy Blair. The 46-year-old rapper known as “Tim Dog” has an active arrest warrant just in case he is still alive. He owes Esther Pilgrim a lot of money.
Dog was featured on a Dateline episode in 2012 after he scammed Pilgrim, of Southaven, and several other women around the country, out of thousands in cash. He preyed on the lonely women, telling them in online dating services that he was good looking and wealthy. While the good looking part may or may not be true, his wealth was being added to by the women.
He was eventually ordered to pay $19,000 to Pilgrim in restitution and was doing it until his alleged death in February. Several media outlets reported the “F— Compton” singer had died of complications from diabetes.
Pilgrim then alleged that may not be true and Dog may be trying to get out of paying the money back. One suspiciously missing item is a death certificate. Dog was supposedly living and died in the Atlanta area.
If he is found and arrested, he may face additional charges and will likely have to resume paying pilgrim back.
