Rice Investigating Korn: Feds To Look into Possible Ponzi Scheme After Lawyer Jumps To His Death

Attorney Jay Korn, 70, jumped to his death last week in Hempstead, New York. After his death, former clients came forward with allegations of a $11 million Ponzi scheme created by Korn.

Korn’s end was particularly gruesome after a first-floor awning partially broke his fall. The result is that he survived impact but died about half an hour later.

More than three dozen people who say they have lost about $11 million have filed complaints against the Hempstead lawyer at the center of a Ponzi scheme probe launched after he jumped to his death from his eight-story office building’s roof last week, authorities said Monday.

Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice said investigators removed documents yesterday from Korn’s office and are looking into “a possible multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme.”

  3. I suppose when he jumped in haste he did not make too good of sidewalk paste. He was wry and not very spry and now hell have no more use for a simple glass of rye…
