PORTLAND, Ore. – PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Clues are emerging about the past of an Oregon man who used the identity of an Ohio boy killed in a kidnapping.
Federal agents revealed the man's true identity in a court filing Thursday. So far, investigators have learned Doitchin Krasev (DOY'-chin KRAH'-sehv) went to college in North Carolina and lived in Colorado before moving to Oregon.
Krasev claimed to be Jason Robert Evers, who was killed in Cincinnati in 1982. But a passport application check led to his arrest last month, and a national investigation finally revealed his real name.
A friend in Colorado says Krasev went by the name Danny Kaiser and was an avid tennis and chess player.
Investigators say they hope to release more details soon.
Krasev is charged with making a false statement on a passport application. He also faces identity fraud charges in Ohio.
