Grieving dad gets OfficeMax mail addressed ‘Daughter Killed In Car Crash’

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Grieving parents who lost their daughter in a car crash last year say they were victimized again by a piece of junk mail from OfficeMax.

Mike Seay lives in far north suburban Lindenhurst.

He says an advertisement from OfficeMax was addressed to “Mike Seay, Daughter Killed In Car Crash.”

In a statement, OfficeMax said the mailing “is a result of a mailing list rented through a third-party provider” and offered its apologies to Seay.

The family has no plans to sue OfficeMax, but Seay does want a personal apology from the company’s chief executive.

    $5 says there are two lawyers speeding on their way to these people's house to promise them untold riches if they sue. you can thank the Democrats for making Illinois a very litiginous state.

    wow…u read into that just like Rachel Madcow would have you. o, you cretin (look it up) – the issue is that this sad occurrence is not reimbursable.

      As stated, the family mentioned they weren't going in that direction in the first place. You should've left it at that. Dragging a political party into this and then using insults doesn't help your case. Once again it's all about you. Try being sympathetic rather than throwing stones and you might go over better. Pretty simple.

      "Andrea" or probably Steve, stop trying so hard. You're an idiot. You know this. Your friends know this. You don't need the rest of the world to know you're an idiot. Just move on with your life and get a real job instead of being a paid troll on comment threads.

    so are you going to ignore the issue of tort reform (again, look it up) completely? what party has historically, repeatedly and enthusiastically quelled any form of tort reform over the years? what effect do you think all this suing has in controlling medical costs and promoting business in Illinois? use your brain to answer, no bumper sticker blurts allowed.

      You can grill me all you want on parties and hijack this topic all you want but this article isn't about this. It's about some careless person that had the gall to describe a tragic and painful event to use as an addressee for a delivery. It was a very foolish oversight and there are amends to be made here. It's a shame the press is involved in this now but it is what it is. The family does deserve a public apology and if OfficeMax chooses to go farther to remedy this I have no qualms with that.
