A rising soccer star who was presumed to have died in a 2016 car crash is actually alive and well, German newspaper Bild reported.
Hiannick Kamba was believed to have died while on a trip to his home country of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and his ex-wife allegedly collected life insurance money after his death, the paper reported.
Kamba's case came to light amid an insurance fraud investigation into his ex-wife's actions, Bild reported.
Kamba has not been charged himself and may testify against his ex-wife in the case, CBS Sports reported.
Since returning to Germany, Kamba has been working as a chemical technician at an energy supply company, according to Bild.
