And finally… massive mansion difficult to conceal
A federal tax fraud investigation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania began after an impressive 35,000 square foot mansion was spotted from the sky.
Sources told KDKA-TV that federal agents on commercial flights in and out of Pittsburgh were so blown away when they spotted the huge mansion from the sky that they decided to start looking into it.
Federal tax investigators now believe the mansion’s construction and upkeep were wrongly logged as business expenses.
Other supposed business expenses include the creation of a swimming pool on the property, the purchase of a Rolls Royce, and the wages of chefs and butlers working at the mansion.
Defence attorney James DePasquale said his client agreed to plead guilty to the criminal tax fraud charges.
