An American cut off his paralyzed legs to get insurance benefit

According to media reports, a 60-year-old paraplegic man lost both legs, allegedly after an accident with a mower attached to a tractor, in November 2023. However, experts found several inconsistencies after the American had applied for insurance benefits.

Firstly, the man never showed his severed legs so that doctors could record this fact, and secondly, the American’s wounds were too even and clean, which is not typical for this kind of injury.

“If it had been a mower, it would have been a real mess. I've seen accidents like this before,” Sheriff Tory Thompson notes.

As the investigation continued, new white spots appeared in the man's story. Thus, the officers eventually learned that the American’s legs were chopped off with an ax, and his friend did it for money.

The man was charged with giving false testimony, but the court decided not to imprison him.
