Death in Havana?
Don't get excited, because it's fugitive financier Robert Vesco who "may" have died in Havana of lung cancer. There is some evidence to indicate that it was Vesco, a colorful character who apparently could not contain himself even on the lam and wound up in a Cuban jail for purportedly defrauding Castro relatives. Here's an old Fortune story with quite a few of the details of his life and his exile. And here is an article about the death(?) from Moldova. Yup. To be fair, they got their info from a Times story.
