True Crime or fiction?

1984 - 1986, an indian immigrant dies in a fireball while fixing a car. It looks like an accident and it would be seen as one, only for quick thinking forensics when his partner claims on the insurance.

Guy who really died was the poor partner, who choosed his victim due to size and ethnic background. He was already making his way on a 1 way ticket to India when the car was rigged with his body inside or underneath it.

It was the first time dental records were used to prove insurance fraud.

Anyone know the case?
