Better Have a Will If You Plan to Die In Brooklyn

The unwritten rule in the bad old days was that dying intestate (without a will) in Brooklyn could pretty much wipe out your estate.

It turns out those bad days never went away.

Two employees of the Kings County Public Administrator’s office have been convicted for embezzling $2.6 million from Brooklyn estates, the Eagle reports.

That's the office that administers your estate if you don't have a will.

Between 2008 and 2011, Richard Paul and Taryn Miller stole $2,617,000 from seven decedents’ estates in Brooklyn.

It's a shame it happened, but it reinforces the old advice: Make that will!
