Greenspan's Body Count: Arthur Darnell Bailey

Alan Greenspan has been quite active in the San Diego area recently. Now he's been sighted in the 1-hour commuter community of Murrieta in Southwest Riverside County.
A Murrieta man accused of bilking his elderly mother-in-law out of more than $200,000 was found dead of an apparent suicide in his home last week, the same day he was supposed to be in court to face charges, Murrieta police said Wednesday.

The man's wife, who is also accused of embezzling money from her own mother, apparently also tried to commit suicide in the couple's shared home on the city's north end, Sgt. Phil Gomez said.


The couple came under investigation last year after Brooke Bailey's half-brother reported to police his suspicions that the Baileys were draining the account of his mother, who is now 74.

According to a declaration in support of an arrest warrant for Brooke Bailey ---- an arrest warrant sought after she missed her court appearance last week ---- the victim's checking account showed evidence that money had gone to cover costs including mortgage and utility payments, as well as leasing payments for a BMW.

Greenspan's version of the American Dream was that nobody had to work anymore. We could all just buy more house than we could afford, then get rich as house prices rose to the moon and buy a garage full of toys. Too many people, including Arthur and Brooke Bailey, fell for that nightmare.

The Baileys were listed at 27543 Paper Bark Avenue, which they appear to have purchased in 2007 for $560,000. It is now worth $297,000 according to Zillow.

Greenspan's Body Count stands at 184.

Greenspan's Body Count: Nadia Braxton, Kayla Peters, Nayah Peters, and Nyla Peters

Easy Money in the Big Easy:
A woman from Kenner, La., a suburb near New Orleans, was found dead inside her home by her husband Tuesday, lying atop the bodies of her three children, all of whom had died from apparent gunshot wounds, reports CBS affiliate WWL-TV.

The husband told police he had just come home from work when he discovered the bodies. No charges have been filed. Police have not ruled out the possibility that it was a murder-suicide.

The victims in the shooting were identified as: Nadia Braxton, 29; Kayla Peters, 12; a 1-year-old child, Nayah Peters and a 6-month-old, Nyla Peters, WWL reports.

The woman was struggling to pay the mortgage on her home, which she bought just before Hurricane Katrina, The Times-Picayune reports.

The property was first seized by the Sheriff's Office in January of 2010 for failure to make mortgage payments, The Times-Picayune reports. Braxton's case was dismissed a few months later when she brought her payments up to date, only to have the Sheriff's Office seize the property again for non-payments in December of last year.

A mortgage is never worth killing yourself or your family over. Nadia's family could have been like this happy family if only she'd known about

Greenspan's Body Count: Dusan and Renata Klein

It's not easy spending one's life hot on the trail of the 21st century's most prolific serial killer, Alan Greenspan. I am the Javert to Greenspan's Jean Valjean, the Clouseau to his Pink Panther.

But having spent these years tracking the fiend, I have come to know him like no other.

And so it was that I recognized his modus operandi in the killings of Dusan and Renata Klein, before Dusan's body had been found and before even news of the couple's financial distress was made public.

The sad case of Dusan and Renata Klein came to an end Friday as Dusan's body was found on a hiking trail in the Las Vegas area. He had apparently committed suicide after killing Renata and dumping her in the Angeles National Forest. The dog has not been found, but investigators reportedly found canine blood in the family truck and believe Dusan killed the dog.

Alan Greenspan is still walking the streets, and even giving interviews on CNBC.

Greenspan's Body Count stands at 179.
