Saint Paul, MN asked in Criminal Law and White Collar Crime for Minnesota

Q: Ths fame was faulty I jumped to the next frame.

A friend accepted $500,000,000 worth of art and collectibles, took them out of state and sold them as her own. I kept track of all sales. I called the Sotheby's, Christies, Butterfields when they announced the sales and got a ton of goofy answers. They sold these items with made up provenance. This should be illegal (SEE PETER WATSON-SOTHEBYS, THE INSIDE STORY.) this gal murdered her husband because he threatened to expose the crime. There was no autopsy after his death. it never made it to Wisconsin's vital statistics. A now retired attorney told me that much of the selling was fraudlent because of the made-up Provenance. The Houses should be called out on this criminal activities. Would recovery be possible? The thief has been buying large apartment complexes and lavish homes in Arizona and California. Her crimes should be exposed and appropriate pentalities awarded. Her father served time for selling post guards that didn.t belong to him.
