Description

The Miami Herald investigates the death of Mort Levin, a Miami millionaire who married prostitute, Gloria Maestre, shortly before his death. While some believed 32-year- old Maestre married the 78-year-old with plans of killing him, it was really Levin's lawyers who profited off his demise. After Levin married Maestre, lawyers declared him mentally incapacitated, stripped him of all legal rights and committed him to a psychiatric hospital while they continued to charge more than $200,000 for their service. (July 14,1996)
