SEOUL (AFP) - A homeless South Korean unable to withdraw his life savings because he could not remember his real name has died in poverty, officials said.
The man, believed to be aged 56, died of cancer last month, leaving 128 million won (just over 100,000 dollars) in a bank account that was opened in early 1993 under the alias of Na Hae-Dong.

A local court is expected to order that the savings revert to the state, he added.

This makes me sad to read.
Wouldn't he have had any documentation stating his birth name on it? (sorry I can't read the article it's blocked at my work).
