The Elusive Life of Nicholas Alahverdian: A Web of Deception and Controversy

Season 1 | Episode 229
58m | Sep 11, 2023

Nicholas Alahverdian, also known as Nicholas Rossi and Arthur Knight, is an American sex offender who faked his own death in 2020.

He claimed to have suffered abuse and negligence in Rhode Island's Department of Children Youth and Families (DCYF) and unsuccessfully sued the DCYF in federal court in 2011.

He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2020, and news outlets reported his death, but reports were disputed. In 2021, he was identified in a Scottish hospital, arrested in December on charges of alleged rape in Utah in 2008, and his identity was confirmed despite his claims of mistaken identity. A sheriff ruled he could be extradited to the United States in August 2023, pending confirmation by the Scottish government.
