Description

The Hartford Courant's investigation revealed that the would-be developer of a $50 million professional soccer stadium in the city was a convicted embezzler, that he and a business partner billed the city for hundreds of thousands of dollars in work that was never done, and that the pair siphoned hundreds of thousands of dollars from their own development company, leaving it unable to pay its debts. As a result of the stories, the FBI launched a criminal investigation, which is underway.
