Greenspan's Body Count: Eddie and Stacey Bryant

Same story, different day.

The Orange County cities of Rancho Santa Margarita and Trabuco Canyon could have served as the model for Agrestic, the parody of suburban tract home sprawl in the TV series Weeds. And, as in the series, real life in the ticky tacky tiny boxes ain't no Ozzie and Harriet.

CBS2 News:
Authorities have confirmed that a man shot his wife, then turned the gun on himself in their home in upscale Rancho Santa Margarita.

Eddie Lydell Bryant, 39, shot Stacey Tomekia Bryant, 38, then killed himself, Orange County sheriff's Investigator Dan Salcedo said.

The shooting was reported at 1:42 p.m. Wednesday at their home on Birdhollow Drive. Deputies broke into the house and found the bodies, Salcedo said.

The couple, who were high school sweethearts, was having "relationship issues," he said.

"Relationship issues." He left the toilet seat up all the time, she was a big nag, something like that, right?

Not so fast. Zillow shows their home at 21421 Birdhollow in Trabuco Canyon was purchased for $702,000 in 2004, was worth around $850,000 at the peak and is now worth under $700,000. Is he underwater from a home ATM withdrawal? We may never know, but it's a fair bet he was struggling with the mortgage. You think being underwater, out of work, and with a wife whose income is dependent on the mortgage industry might add a little strain to the relationship?

Bonus: here's the LinkedIn profile of Kenneth (K. Edward) Bachrington, which is an alias used by Eddie Bryant. He claims to be a Marine with a UCLA MBA and impressive corporate management credentials. All a facade to try to keep up in Greenspan's bubble, I presume. But if he was telling the truth about the Anderson MBA, it's even worse, as he'd have permanent, undischargeable student loan debt haunting him for life.

Still completely proud of your bubble-blowing record at the Fed, Mr. Greenspan?

What a sad blog this is. I don't know how you can look for all these horrific stories. I heard about an older man who lived in a modest house for many years and refused to leave when the bank sent the sheriff in to remove him. He must have taken out money on his equity. The man shot himself rather than become homeless. What a choice! I am so upset that these things can happen in the "richest country in the world."

You are doing an excellent service. Did you send the list to Greenspan every time it is updated?

But these people in government (Greenspan, Geithner, Bernanke, Bush, Blankfein, etc. etc.) have no empathy or they would have left their jobs a long time ago.
