An Associated Press investigation has found that a commander of a Nazi SS-led unit accused of atrocities has been living in Minnesota since shortly after World War II.

Records obtained by the AP through a Freedom of Information Act request show that Michael Karkoc lied to American authorities to get into the country.

Eyewitness accounts confirm the Ukrainian company he commanded burned down villages filled with women and children,and suggest that Karkoc was at the scene as company leader. No records show he had a direct hand in atrocities.

The U.S. Department of Justice has used lies in immigration papers to deport dozens of suspected Nazi war criminals.

Karkoc refused to discuss his wartime past at his home in Minneapolis.
