Authorities: Va. man married 2 women, posed as CIA agent

WASHINGTON – A 26-year-old Virginia man charged with bigamy has been married simultaneously to a sailor in Norfolk and a woman living in the City of Fairfax, police say.

David Jin Lee of Williamsburg, Va., is accused of posing as a CIA agent to cover up his two wives.

NBC Washington reports he asked his Norfolk wife for money after saying he had been captured and tortured by agents from North Korea during a mission.

City of Fairfax police say they searched the Fairfax home with NCIS investigators and found evidence that led them to charge Lee with bigamy, forgery of a public document and uttering of a public document.

All of those charges are directly related to a marriage license that police say was issued in Fairfax.

NBC Washington reports NCIS investigators seized a CIA coin, gun and items — including a laminating machine — that could have been used to make CIA badges.

Bigamy is a Class 4 felony in Virginia. It carries a penalty of 2-10 years in prison and up to $100,000 fine.

City of Fairfax Police say Lee was arrested by NCIS in Williamsburg this week on other charges, and he is currently being held in jail. NCIS won’t comment on an ongoing investigation.
