Seth Tobias Murder Mystery Becoming Like a Carl Hiaasen Novel

Sometimes real life is just hundreds of times more fascinating than fiction.

The Seth Tobias mystery is finally beginning to take shape.  When this hedge fund manager died over Labor Day in his early 40s, it barely made the news.  His family seemed to just claim that it was a history of heart problems in the case.

Now, the story becomes even more interesting than imaginable with his siblings claiming that his wife lured him into the swimming pool with promises of gay sex with a stripper.  And, that seems to just be the beginning.

I've read all of Carl Hiaasen's books.  This New York Times article is like a book condensed into 2 pages.

I cannot wait to see how this turns out and I love the comment by Jim Cramer that he can't understand why this isn't on Miami Vice yet.

    The amazing thing about this is not so much that he was murdered by his wife, but that his brothers seemed to all be content to just write it off as the man dying of heart failure at 44, until they realized that the wife was going to get everything in probate.

    After reading all of the news accounts today about Seth Tobias I wonder what is really happening. I believe my son is the Tiger that is in all the accounts and he has not worked for 7 or 8 years at Cupids. For Seth's wife to promise sex with him now is crazy. When I talked to my son he thinks it is a fantasy of hers and does not understand why she is saying the things that she is. I have checked out her in the court records and the internet and I think she was out to get him and his money from the very beginning. Before all the latest news cast I figured that she did it and now it looks like she is just weaving a thicker web of deceit. How long can the police there claim that they will not investigate his death until tox screens come back. From looking at her extensive marriage records on the internet it looks like she started out with nothing and then started using men for their money. I can not even find that she divorced all of her husbands.
