Do you really believe that the President of the Club Group(Mark King) didn't know that Dennis Gerwing misappropriated 2.1 million dollars?

I''ve got it! Blame everything on the dead guy! New
Mark King says that Dennis Gerwing took the money and Dennis went THAT WAY! No wait! Dennis Gerwing is dead. Okay, new story. Let's blame everything on the the guy that Sheriff Tanner says committed suicide. Yeah, that's it ...it was Gerwing ...he did it, he's the one ...he took ALL the money and by the way I want it back! remember ...Gerwing committed suicide ...really he did ...I'm not joking he did ...really ...I'm serious ...he did ...the Sheriff even said so ...don't you believe me? And he took all the money too ...he did ....really ...he did ...I'm not kidding ...I mean it ... he did.

Follow the money. It makes sense that someone who kills himself after being questioned by police is racked by guilt. He obviously had something that he wanted to hide enough that he would kill himself at the thought that it would come out publicly. I'm sure it's not because he just missed his client's so much. They must have found out something and he was desperate to cover it up. I would still be looking closely at the partner, though, it is not necessarily the case that he knew anything.

I've been reading updates on this story and something definitely doesn't sound right. I believe there is a major cover-up going on. Blame it all on the dead guy...because he's not here to defend himself. Blame him for the disappearence (death) of the clients, the misappropriation of $2.1 Million, and of course, taking his own life. Wouldn't it be plausible that the business partner (who is still alive), found out that the clients knew about the $2.1 Million and got rid of them, then got rid of his partner; made it look like a suicide, then blamed it all on him?!?!?

Yeah I feel you on that note. The partner knew all about it I am willing to bet your bottom dollar. Oh how easy he thinks he has gotten off due to his partner in crime has committed suicide. But sooner or later the investigation team will see that 1+1=2 and arrest his a** for conspiracy. And that will carry just as much time has if he did the actual crime himself.

More than possible. I wouldn't put anything past anyone where that kind of money is involved. people have killed over much less.

Mark King promised to pay clients from Gerwing's estate? WHAT? Are you kidding me? WOW! I know Mark's last name is King, however that doesn't mean that Gerwing's death made him KING! I think marky mark is stepping over the line at this point and making promises that he may not be able to keep.

Someone needs to remind the KING that Dennis Gerwing's estate is Gerwing's estate and NOT his personal bank account. King's statements are absolutely amazing.

BTW, King's little in-house audit hasn't proven anything. If anything, he has muddied up the waters for the investigators and is nothing more than a cover-up for what's really going on inside the Club Group.

Mark King has cleared the deck and is ready to move forward in a positive way. He had no idea. No idea. Really?

We are ready to move again in a positive way. Stay with me now ...really we are ...we are all positive now ...we have all this figured out ...okay ... we are moving in a positive way ...don't worry ...we are getting money from Gerwing's estate and by the way no one knew anything ...you understand me ...nothing. I had no idea and no one else knew anything either ...you got that!...now we are all positive I say ...positive.

Stealing is bad. Stealing from the deaths is very bad.

hey Piper! I like your reasoning. Sounds totally logical to me. wonder if the investigators thought of that. Probably, since they're the experts here. guess we'll see how it all pans ouy.

Has there been any more information on trying to locate this couple? Obviously they seem to be deceased, but any clues as to where or how?

I agree. I have said "from the beginning" that people do not commit suicide by STABBING themselves!
