Looks like his accomplice is going to take the rap - no one else to punish.

Myself and others who knew Fred have asked the same question as we didn't think he would allow himself to ever see jail time. Heart attacks can be created. If he was simply in Florida to take care of a property rental, why were all of his family members at his bedside at the hospital when he died? Especially if it was a massive heart attack on the day he was to be returning to Erie.
I feel very sorry for his family. Yes, they lived the good life created by his greed, but they have also suffered through the humiliation along with Fred. I also do not feel Fred's death should wipe out the restitution that he owed, as that would not help any of those that he deceived in business.
As to his accomplice, his death may help her as it could become a "he said she said" situation, and the "he" part of the equation is now gone. She could say that Fred made her do this, and he will not be here to offer any defense.
I do pray for all involved. This includes Fred's family and his victims. Hopefully some good will ultimately come from this.
