DNA tests have proven that this 87-year-old Tennessee man who used to work as a Postman has over 1,300 illegitimate children. A private investigator hired by the man's family was able to discover the truth.
The evidence was gathered from thousands of DNA tests over a span of 15 years.
“It all started in 2001 when two different men that had nothing to do with each other hired me to find their biological father," P.I. Sid Roy said. "I was astounded after further investigation to realize they both originated from the same person. That is when the mystery started unraveling and it became a personal mission of mine, whenever I had some free time, I’d try and track down other testimonies. Eventually, DNA testing became really cheap and easy to use and helped me gather a lot of information in the latest years,” he said.
When asked how he felt about fathering all of those kids, the man who shall remain nameless said he was in no way ashamed of his sexual exploits.
“Contraception wasn’t very popular in those days,” he told local reporters. “I have nothing to be ashamed of. The 60s were the good old days and I did a great Johnny Cash impression which played out real good with the ladies,” he explained. “Some even thought I was Johnny Cash for real,” he recalls laughingly. “I don’t know if they really believed it or if they were trying to convince themselves, but who was I to say no to a quickie?”
