The Rich Die Richer

Posted in Law by Noah Harlan on October 26, 2009

Earlier, I saw a small AP newswire piece about a guy named Jeffry Picower who was found at the bottom of his swimming pool in Palm Beach, Florida today. Police are investigating the circumstances of Mr. Picower’s death, especially as he was accused of profiting to the tune of $7 Billion from Bernie Madoff’s ponzi scheme. Picower definitely seems like a shady guy and his death is no exception. So, why do I bring this up?

A little, un-noted line in the article:

“Picower suffered from Parkinson’s disease and had “heart-related issues,” said family attorney William D. Zabel. He described Picower’s health as “poor.””

Why is that interesting? Well Bill Zabel wrote a book, ironically titled: “The Rich Die Richer And You Can Too

I guess he was right…
