HOME Where Is Kryder's Money? SITEMAP

 

Disclaimer: The Personal Representative of this family believes that evidence exists which calls into question the integrity of certain individuals who controlled the bulk of the Kryder Family's property. The PR believes that an assortment of estate documents filed in Allen County, Indiana, from an assortment of related estates, do not represent the entire truth. The information published on this website follows ten years of research. It is Public Information cited from documents recorded in the State of Indiana, and from other genuine publications. One or two statements were made directly to the Personal Representative in letters or on the phone. Experts have been consulted at considerable expense. Due to the evasiveness of fiduciaries, relatives, and known associates of the Kryders, the Personal Representative is of the opinion that harm and injustice have been done to a family entitled to protection under the PROBATE CODE OF INDIANA. This is an opinion, not the conclusion of the Personal Representative. Corrections are welcomed and will be promptly acknowledged and applied.
