Comp Fraud In Wyoming Easier To Detect In Workers Than Employers, Providers

Grainy video projected onto a screen depicted a man in waders casting with a fly rod while traversing a bank of river rock — his face pixelated to protect his identity. He was receiving workers’ comp benefits at the time for an injured shoulder.
In another scene — projected sideways onto the same screen — a woman in bulky protective gear sparred in a mock sword competition, her face also pixelated. “This individual, she’s great,” investigator Jennifer Wilch said. “She allegedly hurt her lower back while stepping on a stool at work. She’s also wearing a 25-pound chainmail shirt, and we know this because her husband told our investigator when he was looking at purchasing some chainmail.”
