(RawStory) A Florida man apparently posed as a friend's brother, had him removed from life support, and stole more than $100,000 from him, according to the dead man's relatives.
Roger MacKinnon suffered chest pains May 30, 2011, four years after losing his wife when tornadoes destroyed their Lake County home, and asked a friend and drinking buddy to take him to a hospital.
The widower's heart stopped during an exploratory procedure, reported WESH-TV, and he fell into a coma and was placed on life support.

About a week later, police said, the friend, Richard Leclair, and his wife met with MacKinnon's doctor and authorized Florida Hospital DeLand to remove him from life support, and the Navy veteran died two days later.
