Irina Borodinova identified the deceased of her husband. After receiving the death certificate, she was cremated and returned to the US with his ashes.

In 2012 the insurance company paid the woman two million dollars. Over the next three years a large part of this sum was transferred to Bank accounts in Moldova and Switzerland.

In November 2013 the son Vorotilova returned to the United States from a trip to Moldova. When customs searched his computer found fresh pictures of Igor Vorotynov taken two years after he was presumed dead.

In addition, they have to return the two million dollars that they received.
