ABC News investigates fraud perpetrated by American lawyers and Central American con-artists to lay claim to monies from wrongful death suits made by the families of victims of the crash of Alaska Flight 261. Claims were made on behalf of six children, "fathered" by four men on Flight 261, each of whom happened to have no surviving heirs. According to letters, all the "children" lived in Guatemala. The trail led from Miami to Guatemala City.
