This was on the news in my area a couple weeks ago.
A 72 year old man (retired cop) after setting fire to his home took off into the woods with a gun. A standoff ensued and after several hours during a struggle with a police officer the gun shot him in the stomache.
As this was taking place the neighbors were quoted as saying how nice and helpful this man was.
The details that came out in the end were he was due for a court appearence that morning for his divorce. He had hidden over 2 million dollars in assets and had cashed them all out and shredded or burnt over $2 million in cash. He also had taken his wife's jewelry and threw it into a river as well as planned to burn the house down. He had left a nasty letter in the house for his wife and adult daughter telling them they deserved nothing.
He had planned to kill himself but that idn't happen and now he sits in the hospital.
There are many other horrifc stories that have been in the news and it is scary to know how low some narcs can go!
