Boston Man Arrested For Filing Bombing Injury Claim for Aunt Who Died Ten Years Ago

Allegedly claimed she was double amputated and collected a check from an undercover state trooper


A 22-year-old Boston man is facing charges after officials say he submitted a false claim to The One Fund Boston worth $2.195 million.

Attorney General Martha Coakley says Branden Mattier was arrested at his home in the South End on Tuesday when an undercover state trooper handed him a fake check for the full amount.
