Greenspan's Body Count: Claude "Butch" Trucks

Digital Music News:
Butch Trucks, drummer and co-founder of the classic rock group Allman Brothers Band, died on Tuesday. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head in his waterfront condo in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Trucks shot himself in front of his wife of 25 years, according to the Daily Mail. Police in West Palm Beach and the group have tried to keep the suicide hidden.


Court records show the late drummer wrestled with financial problems. In 2011, he sold his prized Palm Beach home for $2 million to pay off an $800,000 bank mortgage. Federal records show the IRS hounded Trucks. Last year, the IRS filed two liens against his $500,000 condo. Trucks had to pay additional taxes for 2013 and 2014 with a total over $540,000.
Greenspan's Body Count stands at 259.

Greenspan's Body Count: Glen and Emi Yamasaki

A decade after the peak of his diabolical, deliberately created housing bubble, the 21st century's most prolific serial killer is still killing.  Less than a month after his most recent murder, Alan Greenspan has killed a married couple in Las Vegas.

Daily Mail:
An elderly couple who died in a joint suicide faced a recent history of credit card debt and other financial troubles, court records reveal.

Emi and Glen Yamasaki, both 63, were seen driving to the fifth and highest floor of the parking garage at the Silverton Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Wednesday night, before they jumped off together, police said.

Discover Bank reached a $15,400 settlement on their credit card debt in early December, and their next-door neighbors sued the couple for $2,400 on December 15, according court records cited by the Las Vegas Review Journal.


Court records obtained by the newspaper showed the pair had a history of financial troubles.

Discover Bank filed a complaint against the couple in April, and Emi Yamasaki signed an agreement to make monthly payments of $200 on November 4.

A settlement with the bank was reached, and a judgement of $15,400 was entered against the couple on December 2, according to Clark county District Court records.


The couple had also purchased a home in Sun City Anthem in Henderson, Nevada, in 2005 for about $415,000 - although a filing suggests they were at risk of foreclosure.
Twelve years after Greenspan's bubble, that home Zillows at $384,000.
