Hero, as I read your response, I thought to myself that there are many things that we would like to be considered competent/experts in, but I will bet you 10 to 1 that answering this question as practically as you did would not have been on your top ten list of things to be competent at.
Pax, I am sorry you find yourself in this prediciment, but I don't really believe in coincidences. If you believe in God, I would tell you that you were prompted by God to do the facebook search. You may very well be an angel of mercy to countless people.
I suppose I would contact the attorney and ask his advice. While I think that you must ultimately do something, he may be able to guide you in the best way to proceed.
God be with you.
