Welcome back, Earl Jones

Investment advisor, who is alleged to have siphoned up to $50 million from his clients, is back in Canada, says lawyer


 

Turns out, disgraced Montreal investment advisor Earl Jones is in Canada after all. And police knew it all along, according to Jones’s lawyer, who says his client has been keeping a low profile after receiving threats. Jones is alleged to have siphoned up to $50 million from his clients, some of whom invested their entire life savings with him. His firm has since been shut down while investigators try to piece together evidence amid rumours Jones had fled to the U.S. or the U.K. lawyer Jeffrey Boro says Jones did indeed travel to the U.S., but says his client is back in Canada and ready to meet with police. “I have access to my client and when the police are ready to speak with him, he will be ready to meet with them,” he says. Boro adds Jones isn’t handling the controversy surrounding him very well, suggesting “it would not be a surprise” if Jones took his own life.

    Truly shocking to see what they get away with. Maybe the Batman's yellow brick road to eliminating criminal activity can start here?
