[Welcome Industry Radar readers!]
We all do stupid things from time to time, but this one takes the proverbial cake:
"The insurance agency owner charged in the death of a state examiner initially consented to a search of his office and car but withdrew after police found areas on carpet and a computer cord that tested positive for blood."
Seems that the owner of Dilworth Insurance in Charlotte, NC was being investigated based on an "administrative complaint;" Sallie Rohrbach, the DOI investigator, went missing while conducting her investigation. At one point, "(e)ight armed law-enforcement investigators with the North Carolina Department of Insurance [joined] the search." Never heard of armed insurance investigators before (maybe that's a good thing).
Ms Rohrbach's funeral was this past Sunday. The 40-year-old agent, Michael Howell, has been charged with first-degree murder. The authorities believe that "her death is connected to her duties as an auditor."
Rest in Peace, Sallie.
