Death certificate: Rapper Tim Dog died last year

ATLANTA (AP) -
A death certificate filed in Georgia shows rapper Tim Dog was dead when a warrant was issued for his arrest last year.
The rapper, whose real name was Timothy Blair, had been convicted of stealing thousands of dollars.
One swindling victim from Mississippi told prosecutors she stopped receiving restitution payments around the same time Blair was reported dead. DeSoto County prosecutor Steven Jubera said in May 2013 that since he had no proof Blair was dead, he had to assume the rapper was alive. Jubera sought an arrest warrant, and a judge approved it.
A death certificate from DeKalb County, Georgia, shows that a Timothy Blair with the same birth date and Social Security number listed in the Mississippi court documents died on Feb. 14, 2013.
