Death and Television: A Cautionary Tale

New, 1 comment

A true mortgage meltdown. Authorities are investigating whether a suspected murderer was driven to kill by his tanking real estate investments. Jing Hua Wu and his wife went on a buying spree starting in 2004, at the near-peak of the housing bubble; now Wu says he can't afford an attorney. One commenter suggests that Wu was staying up late watching National Recreation Properties infomercials and buying up their "middle of nowhere" rentals. You heard it here first, people: turn off your television. [SF Gate]
