Accountant Stole From Missing S.C. Couple
I haven’t really posted much about this case that’s been going on for a while. According to the employer of an accountant who killed himself after his Hilton Head Clients went missing last month says that an audit shows he embezzled at least $2 million from different companies.
I did post a little about the suicide last month, but here’s a tiny bit of background. Back in March John and Elizabeth Calvert turned up missing. The live part time on their yacht in a Marina that they run in addition to several other businesses there. I don’t guess I have ever met them down there but all of the videos and photos I have seen shown look like the Sea Pines area of the island. The lighthouse is down there along with the Salty Dog, one of my favorite hangouts for kids and adults alike. I don’t know that I have ever been without the girls but it sure would be nice. I don’t see going to Bluffton or Hilton Head anytime soon though. Since the wife’s friend moved overseas she wouldn’t want to be reminded of that.
Police are looking in more than just Hilton Head but the search for the couple has been fruitless. After questioning the accountant, Dennis Ray Gerwing, police reported about three weeks ago that he slashed himself six times with a steak knife and bled to death in a bath tub.
According to one of the suicide notes left by Gerwing this sounds like some sort of conspiracy.
