Andrew Ross Sorkin, A Lurid Aftermath to a Hedge Fund Manager’s Life, NYTimes.com, Dec. 4, 2007, reports:
Mr. Tobias, who was 44 years old, had apparently suffered a heart attack[.]*** The police did not consider his death suspicious.
But now an unfolding drama over Mr. Tobias’s estate is providing a lurid account of fast money and faster living in the volatile world of hedge funds. Mr. Tobias’s four brothers and Mrs. Tobias are locked in a legal battle over the estate, which is worth at least $25 million. And, in a civil complaint, they have gone so far as to accuse her of murder.***
At the center of the dispute is Mr. Tobias’s will, which designates his brothers as beneficiaries but does not name Mrs. Tobias.***
