This story by Tony Ondrusek was published in IFA News today. It has a resemblance to the situation of Raymond Marc Zachry, the cause of this blog, Justice For Raymond.
Jung Min Jun, 69, of Fresh Meadows, N.Y., pleaded guilty to the 2011 murder of Kwang Sup Hur, 75, of Dale City, Va. Jun killed the man to collect on a $1 million insurance policy that would have been paid out to Jun’s son, authorities said. If the judge accepts the plea, Jun will receive a 45-year prison sentence with 25 years suspended. Scheduling is set for February.
Jun’s wife, Jung OK Jun, and son, Ho Young Jun, also were arrested in relation to the murder. Jung OK Jun initially faced a murder charge, but recently pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice. She received a six-month jail sentence with all the time suspended. Prosecutors said she was not involved with the murder.
Court records show the son obtained the $1 million life insurance policy several years before the murder. His trial has been pushed back until April 2013.
Hur’s wife found him dead on Sept. 1, 2011, at their apartment in Dale City. Police arrested Jun a few days later at the Newark, N.J., airport, where he was preparing to board a plane to Beijing, China.
Ho Young Jun then tried, unsuccessfully, on Sept. 6, 2011, to collect on the insurance policy.
The insurance company, New York Life, has filed a petition to have the assets from the policy put into the court’s custody.
New York Life Insurance Company took the same steps and filed in Philadelphia Federal Court to have the assets of Raymond Zachry’s life insurance policy put into court custody when his widow, Darlene Miller Zachry (a/k/a Darlene Zachery) filed a false claim for a policy that she was not the beneficiary and had never been the beneficiary.
The widow, Darlene Zachry filed a forged letter with the court that the widow claimed was sent to New York Life Insurance Company by her late husband, Raymond Marc Zachry, changing the beneficiary to her.
Only, one slight problem in this story. New York Life Insurance Company did not receive this letter until six months after Mr. Zachry suddenly died.
When a huge amount of poison was discovered in his blood toxicology, the coroner refused to allow an investigation.
The widow was subsequently arrested and charged with insurance fraud and 50 other charges four years after her husband’s death. However, the DA is allowing a plea deal that will dismiss the insurance fraud, and all but one charge of perjury.
“She didn’t receive any money”, claims Assistant District Attorney, John Gradel when asked by the victim’s mother, Shirley Sanservino, why would the insurance fraud case be dropped when Pennsylvania claims to be so hard on insurance fraud.
I suppose it just depends on who, where and when you decide to defraud the state and the estate of your family member, and how much money is involved.
