"He fooled no one"

Parkin then doctored documents and went to the Department of Motor Vehicles dressed as his late mother. While there, he renewed her driver’s license, a move that was caught on surveillance video, according to prosecutors.

He later contacted investigators from Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes’ real estate fraud office. Parkin invited them to the mother’s home, telling them he would not be there, but that she would.

Investigators found Parkin in a cardigan sweater, with red lipstick, manicured nails, and breathing through an oxygen tank.
