Twin Cities man nabbed in Europe 7 years after allegedly faking death for $2 million insurance payout


November 21, 2018

After having his supposed ashes interred seven years ago in a Minneapolis mausoleum, a Twin Cities man living under a false name in Eastern Europe is charged in connection with a family scheme to cheat an insurance company out of $2 million by faking his death.

Igor Vorotinov, 54, appeared in federal court Monday in Minneapolis after being indicted in February 2015 on one count of mail fraud. Authorities captured Vorotinov in Moldova on Nov. 14, where he was turned over to FBI agents from Minneapolis, said FBI spokesman Michael Kulstad. Vorotinov was then extradited to the United States three days later, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
