Dead Hero Firefighter’s Wife Exposed

Wharton firefighter Thomas Araguz died July 4 battling a four-alarm egg farm fire. According to court records the firefighter’s wife is a man.

“A certified copy of her birth certificate indicates she’s a male and in Texas two men can’t be married” says Frank Mann III the attorney of Thomas’s 2 children from a previous marriage. Thomas’s mother is now finishing what she says her son started, having the marriage between Thomas and NIkki declared legally void.

In late April it was Mann who says he broke the news to Thomas Araguz that his wife was born a boy. Mann showed Thomas  the birth certificate and the request for a name change.  As if he did not know.

“(Nikki) admitted in an affidavit she was working toward getting a sex change operation and that she’d been living as a woman for over a year” says Mann.

Two months later on July 4th, the firefighter died in that massive blaze.

The firefighters mother is trying to have the marriage between Thomas and Nikki declared legally void. Nikki’s in-laws have been granted a restraining order to keep Nikki Araguz from collecting any benefits until this can be sorted out in court.

The first court hearing is Friday as the Araguz family tries to have the marriage legally void.

Attorneys trying to keep the estate for the Araguz boys point to the Christie Littleton case out of San Antonio from 1999. The court ruled a marriage between a man and a transsexual woman who was born a man was not valid.

At the end of the day Nikki is the one in the bed mourning alone for the lost of her love. Like any other new widow, she is in a house remind of him everyday, and now she has gto deal with people calling her tranny faggot on her facebook page in the midst of this emotional time.
