My aunt passed away in May of 2007. She had a local attorney listed in her will as the executor. There were several questionable issues with the selling of her home....it finally sold in November of 2008 for more than $100,000.00 less than originally value. The total estate was about $975,000.00. If distributed about 60% of the estate in April, 2009, another 25% in June, 2009, and we are still waiting on the remainder. When I contacted him...he advised that it takes time to close out the probate issues. ????? I believe he is merely holding on to his golden goose as long as he can, totally unethical !!! He has had the money since November, 2008, and still it goes on.
