The Sad Case of Ernie Banks

Ernie Banks was a legendary baseball player with the Chicago Cubs.

Late in life Mr. Banks, estranged from his wife and suffering from dementia, "signed" new estate planning papers giving his "caretaker" power-of-attorney and making her heir to his entire estate, cutting out his wife and his children.

Banks died recently and not surprisingly the estate has become a lawyer festival.

Theft and fraud-by-deception by caregivers is rampant, ranging from small thefts of cash and jewelry to systematic looting of estates.

More on this as the case develops. At this point, everyone is innocent until the facts as found and revealed.
