英國護理師寄DNA尋回富爸爸 繼承「5億莊園」變富豪
23 May 2019


英國一名31歲護理師Jordan Adlard Rogers從小就聽媽媽說自己是一個富豪的兒子,長大後他一直尋找生父,期待能與對方相認,最後經由DNA檢驗,終於找到爸爸就是彭羅斯莊園(Penrose Estate)的主人,因此順利繼承價值5000萬英鎊(約港幣5億元)的土地,搖身一變成為富翁。

原本是名護理師,雖然賺的錢足以讓他養活自己,但仍常常要面對繳不完的帳單壓力,於是他想起8歲時曾聽媽媽說過,他生父是彭羅斯莊園的主人Charles Rogers,其後他多次寫信給對方求證,但一直都沒有收到任何消息。

原來Charles晚年染上了毒癮,沉迷在藥物的不當使用,最後嗑藥過度死在車上,財產頓時沒人可以繼承。Charles的律師2018年收到Jordan寄來的DNA試劑盒,顯示出JordanCharles是真正的父子,相約見面後,律師一看到Jordan就更加相信對方是Charles的兒子,因為二人長得十分相像,有著一模一樣的神韻。

身份被證實後,繼承了爸爸的莊園,一夕間變成富翁,再也不用擔心有一堆待繳帳單,甚至也不用再繼續工作。Jordan透露,雖然現在已經辭掉護理師職位,但他未來會成立慈善機構,用爸爸的財富幫助更多需要的人,「就算變成有錢人,我也不會忘記自己的根。」對於爸爸的死亡更是感到痛心,「我寧願用所有的錢來換回父親!」

目前Jordan每周可以獲得1000英鎊的津貼,每年還能另外領取5.2萬英鎊的信託基金。Jordan計畫將會和女友一起到紐約度假,並慢慢探索這個新接手的莊園,透過爸爸留下來的遺物來了解他生前是個怎樣的人。
