枫丹白露酒店财产继承人的死亡在受害者的妻子和他的继女相互指责对方谋杀时便引发了一场责任推脱游戏。另外,看一下这些年来枫丹白露的“看一下我们画廊”。本·诺瓦克在1954年建造了迈阿密海滩的标志性建筑枫丹白露酒店。“这是一个吸引着富人和名人,包括很多暴徒,这些人使联邦调查局派出卧底特工分配在大宴会厅进行监测来保持一个在北部小镇的首脑记录。正当我在我的书中所讨论的,迈阿密巴比伦,诺瓦克称自己长期被传言和暴民有联系,这是他一直否认的。但在周一,诺瓦克遗留了一个在劳德代尔堡的遗嘱发生了奇怪的改变,将遗嘱授予法官Narcy Novack,她是诺瓦克被谋杀的儿子的寡妇, Ben Jr.,来控制他价值1000万美元的房地产?奇怪的是,遗嘱认证的裁决是什么使其他亲戚希望撤掉Narcy Novack的谋杀嫌疑,并且让他作为在该州凶手法令下的遗产执行人。法律禁止一个杀手继承受害者遗产的任何一部分?亲戚们在最后一刻放弃了诉讼,因为无法拿出Narcy是凶手的证据。然而其他诺瓦克家族的人的律师要求没有偏见地免职,这让他们在以后提出来了另一个挑战。秘密谋杀震惊迈阿密-The Murder Mystery Rocking MiamiThe death of the heir of the Fontainebleau Hotel fortune has sparked a twisted blame game as the victim's wife and stepdaughter accuse each other of his murder. Plus, VIEW OUR GALLERY of The Fontainebleau through the years.Ben Novack built Miami Beach's iconic Fontainebleau Hotel in 1954.' It was a magnet for the rich and famous, including so many mobsters that the FBI assigned undercover agents to conduct surveillance at the grand ballroom to keep a tally of which northern kingpins were in town.' As I discussed in my book, Miami Babylon, Novack himself was long rumored to have mob connections, which he always denied.But Monday, the Novack legacy took a strange turn when a Fort Lauderdale Probate Judge awarded Narcy Novack, the widow of Novack's murdered son, Ben Jr., control of his $10 million estate.? What made the probate ruling odd was that other relatives wanted Narcy Novack'a suspect in the murder removed as the estate's executor under the state's slayer statute. That law prohibits a killer from inheriting any part of a victim's estate.? The relatives dropped their lawsuit at the last moment, unable to marshal the evidence that Narcy was the killer. But the lawyers for the other Novacks asked for a dismissal without prejudice which allows them to file another challenge at a later date.Click Image to View Our Gallery of the Fontainebleau through the YearsSome background: This past July, Narcy found her husband's bloody corpse at the Rye Town Hilton hotel in Westchester County, New York. He was on the floor beside his bed and had been bludgeoned.? His mouth was covered with duct tape, his hands taped behind his back, and his legs were tied together together below the knees. Missing was Novack's gold bracelet, with 'BEN' in diamonds. Novack had been directing a business conference he had organized. According to his Web site, his company, Convention Concepts Unlimited, took in $50 million annually. Narcy told the police she found her husband's body when she returned from breakfast. The Westchester police believe the murder was a professional hit, although they are not sure' who ordered it, much less carried it out.'While the family fought over burial expenses, Novack's corpse was preserved on ice at the Westchester County medical examiner's office for 52 days before he was finally buried in the family's mausoleum in Queens, New York.? Armed guards kept the fighting family members separated.The Westchester police say Narcy is a 'person of interest.'? She hasn't been charged, nor has anyone else. But the Novack family is a 10-plus on the dysfunction meter. Narcy Novack's daughter from a previous marriage, May Abad, charges that her mom arranged the murder to collect her husband's fortune, and that her mom knew Ben was having an affair.There is little doubt the Novacks had a volatile relationship. In 2002, 11 years into their marriage, Narcy and two others tied Ben Jr. to a chair, threatened to kill him and took money from his safe, according to the police report filed at the time."If I can't have you, no one else will," she told him, according to a divorce petition Ben Jr. filed and then dropped.Narcy told police investigators at the time that the entire episode was part of a sex game.? And she also showed them porno snapshots of women with artificial limbs having sex, claiming her husband had a fetish for them.And just when you think things can't get spicier, Narcy has turned the tables in the current probate fight and accused her own daughter of murdering Ben Jr., a charge Abad vehemently denies. A few days after Novack's body had been found, Narcy and her daughter had a violent fight at Narcy's Fort Lauderdale home.? Narcy called the police, accused Abad of assaulting a niece who was at the home, and had the police remove her forcibly from the property.? Abad told the police her mother had struck her with a crowbar.? Neither Abad nor her mother attended Monday's hearing in Fort Lauderdale.Because her husband left her his estate, Narcy is now free to sell his assets, including their home, his yacht, and his massive collection of Batman memorabilia. The Batman collection, the largest in private hands, was started by Ben Sr. when he owned the Fontainebleau.? It was estimated by Christies in 2000 as potentially worth $15 million.? But after Ben Jr.'s death, much of the Batman memorabilia turned up missing from several warehouses in Broward County. Sources close to the case told The Daily Beast that the locks on the warehouses where the materials were stored had been hacked off.The Novack family is a 10-plus on the dysfunction meterIf yesterday's probate ruling stands, Narcy will likely also gain control of the estate of her late husband's 87-year-old mother, Bernice Novack, who was found dead three months before her son. Part of her estate was inherited by Ben Jr. and part by an illegitimate son of Ben Sr., a homeless man who dramatically showed up eight years after his mother's death and claimed his inheritance just before a court was about to declare him legally dead.?Bernice Novack's April 2009 death in which her body was found face down and her skull was fractured was ruled accidental by Fort Lauderdale police and the Broward County medical examiner.? The coroner's ruling was despite some blood police found smeared on her car and on the walls in the house.? But second thoughts on the closed case came when Rye Brook detectives received an anonymous letter, after Ben Jr.'s murder, claiming that both Bernice and her son were killed by Narcy and an unnamed accomplice. Although initially skeptical, Rye Brook police have said that during the course of their investigation they determined that details in the letter were accurate."What we found interesting in the letter is there were names in it at the time we were not aware of, and as we did our own investigation, we found that information to be true,? a Rye Brook police spokesman told reporters.The letter, written in Spanish, is dated July 20, 2009, a week after Ben Jr.'s brutal murder and three months after his mother's death. It names those involved, says how the murders were committed, and describes the events leading up to the alleged dual homicides.? Based on that letter, the Fort Lauderdale police have opened an investigation into Bernice's death and whether foul play was involved.Narcy Novack's attorney, Howard Tanner, says the allegations about his client are' based on unfounded rumor and innuendo and that she had nothing to do with her husband's death and had nothing to gain from the murder. Attempts to reach May Abad, or her attorney, for comment were unsuccessful.As for Ben Novack Sr.'s great achievement the Fontainebleau it's hanging on by a thread, close to bankruptcy after a billion-dollar renovation failed to revive its fortunes.? It doesn't seem like anything is going right for the Novacks not even their Miami Beach legacy.
