Prosecutor names Oregon mystery man

PORTLAND, Ore. — Authorities have identified an Oregon man who refused to reveal his true name to a federal judge after he was accused of assuming the name of a dead Ohio boy.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Stacie Beckerman filed a motion in federal court Thursday identifying the man as Doitchin Krasev.

Beckerman said she could not release any other details.

The man claimed to be Jason Robert Evers, a boy who was kidnapped and killed in Cincinnati in 1982 at the age of 3. Another man was convicted of the murder and sent to prison.

Krasev was arrested in Idaho in April and charged with making a false statement on a passport application.

While using the name Evers, he had worked as an Oregon liquor agent since 2002. He resigned after his arrest.
