{FD} Mob informant trades witness protection for $100M

A man called The General—though he's gone by other names—carries at least five cellphones at all times and always has an eye out for hidden enemies. And in 2010 at a McDonald's in New York, he became $100 million richer. DNAinfo has the improbable story of a mob informant who befriended a toothless widow and inherited her fortune. The General fled the army in his European home in 1992 and was given asylum in New York with his wife and four children. He would later do what DNAinfo calls "valorous work for the US government" testifying against organized criminals. But after one federal case in 2006, it became too dangerous, and The General entered witness protection, becoming Alben Sagan and relocating to Wisconsin.
