'Right now Katz is pretty much history'

From the 2015 link inside the artikle leading behind a paywall

'.. Katz, 56, fled the United States in 2007 to avoid prosecution in a mortgage scheme.

Federal authorities consider him a fugitive. He is living in Brazil, which has no extradition treaty with the United States, according to published reports.

Federal authorities accused Katz of defrauding banks of about $20 million and indicted him in 2009 on charges of conspiracy and mortgage fraud. He defaulted on a $750,000 Pittsburgh Urban Redevelopment Authority loan that was intended to support improvements in Beechview, where he left behind a trail of dilapidated properties in the business district.

According to Brazilian news magazine CartaCapital [maybe there are more infos], which has published several stories about Katz, he’s living in a beach-front apartment overlooking Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro. Katz told the publication that he is innocent of wrongdoing in the United States.

Efforts to reach him were unsuccessful. Downtown Attorney David S. Pollock, who represented Katz in a divorce proceeding, said his former client is living in Brazil with his wife and children. Katz, he said, is an accomplished cello player and regularly performs in public. “He’s living in his home country, and he’s not hiding,” said Pollock, who considers Katz a friend. “Anybody can find him. I wish I could connect you, but I’m not at liberty to do that.” ..'
