A young upstate New York woman used fake medical records to defraud almost half a million dollars from a fund set up to help victims of the Apr. 15 Boston Marathon bombing.
Audrea Gause, 26, was placed under arrest at her residence in Troy as a Massachusetts fugitive, charging her with larceny from “The One Fund Boston” by claiming to have sustained a brain injury at an event she never attended, according to The New York Post.
Using falsified medical records, Gause claimed she was treated at Boston and New York hospitals and was able to obtain $480,000 from the fund, according to Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley.
Gause first came under investigation when friends, who objected to what she was doing, alerted authorities. Alarms rang louder when she handed $388,000 in cash to a contractor to have a house built.
This represents the latest in a series of outrages directed at Beantown.
The first was the bombing itself, which took three lives and injured over 260 others. Earlier this week, “Rolling Stone Magazine” unveiled an insensitive cover photo that seemed to elevate Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving Boston bomber, to rock star status.
