    The decade-and-a-half disappearance of former Manic Street Preachers guitarist Richey Edwards has led his family to legally change his status from missing to "presumed dead." Edwards was last seen at a central London hotel on February 1, 1995, when he was just 27 years old. His car was found near the Severn Bridge, so it is widely believed that he committed suicide. Since he did not leave a note, Edwards' family continues to receive royalties on his behalf. According to reports, his estate is worth £455,990 or £377,548 after death-related taxes.

    "His affairs have got to be sorted," the family's lawyer, David Ellis, told Walesonline.co.uk. "[This is] not the same as an acceptance that he is dead."
