There's Been a Murder! (Or has there?)

No background on this at all, but in the opening he refers to the assets being held in a trust.  If that is the case, they no longer form part of the estate of his grandfather, so there is no rightful inheritance.  Of course, his family may be beneficiaries of the trust and so would be entitled to an accounting from the trustees or there may be other twists which support or defeat his case.

Will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

I'd believe almost anything where financial skulduggery is concerned involving the island.  The denial of details of beneficial ownership on the island is outstandingly disgraceful quite apart from anything else.

There's too little information here to make any sense of the guy's allegations. Could we start at the beginning ?

Re the title of the thread.

There was a murder:

It won’t be the first time a trust company has tried to diddle the beneficiaries of a trust out of their “inheritance” by not disclosing any information to them or even acknowledging that any settlement is in place. Particularly if this guy stashed it offshore in the 1980s or 1990s the audit trail is going to be really hard to establish. There’s plenty of trust cos ripping huge fees out for still administering trusts their beneficiaries don’t even (and may never know) know exist.

I don’t know after watching the last video of the family. with the wife saying “  cruel sort of murder”  and sheltering “perhaps the killer”.  Is it my suspicious  mind or is this woman seeing the killer as not a real killer , sort of like a person close to home.

the old bugger doesn’t look like he liked to spend his money going of that house.

The lad seems to be alleging the masons have something to do with it and have appropriated his inheritence. But the gran at the time didn't think the masons were involved with her hubby's death.

He suggests there there was a murder conviction that has not been listed in the public domain. I wonder if he’s alleging the killer is the current noted beneficial owner of the trust so could be in the family and that they might have profited from the crime when his side of the family hasn’t received anything (or has actively been blocked from receiving anything) under the same settlement?

They rarely get caught of course, but there was one such that was, when he went a wee bit over the top and got sentenced a 10 year stretch for robbing £5million from one of his trusts. I'm not sure which company that was or who it was but I do remember there was something or other not so long ago.

This one from 2015 perhaps?

Probably just a coincidence but the 'day in court' that was referred to in the interview may be related to this in the civil case management court listing:

Given that the guy said his name is spelt differently from his grandfather.
