There was a local New Car Dealer here in Indianapolis who at one time was rumored to be a groundskeeper for Jackson. This man suddenly went from being a struggling salesman at a Chev dealership to becoming a principal at his own dealership almost overnight. That was unheard of in the 80's. It was widely rumored that he had something to do with the millions disappearing from Jackson.
There is also a rumor of an auctioneer getting rich after "selling" the Jackson estate. True?, who knows but both went from rags to riches following Jacksons death.
