First I see the news that German billionaire Adolf Merckle had stepped in front of a train. Then this news from the Chicago Tribune.
Steven Good, who built Sheldon Good & Co., the real estate auction house his father had founded, into the largest player in the business, apparently put a bullet into his head.
These men couldn’t have lost all their money. What’s even stranger is the Good’s business was probably doing very well, with all the distressed property needing to get sold. So sad.
