Richard Siskey, a Prominent Charlotte Businessman, Found Dead after an Apparent Suicide; Siskey Had Purportedly Faced Losing Property after Allegations of Fraud

Richard Siskey, a prominent Charlotte businessman, has been found dead via gunshot after an apparent suicide, according to News Reports from Charlotte currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.

Siskey’s troubles began after he faced losing property after allegations rose that he had acquired said property from alleged acts of fraud, said News Reports further claim.

Siskey, who was 58 and had done enough in Charlotte to have a local YMCA named after him, was under investigation by the Federal Government, according to a North Carolina Court Filing currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.

The investigation against Siskey explored Siskey’s 1999 purchase of $2.8 million property at the corner of Sharon Road and Sharon Lane, the very same residence he was purportedly found dead, said News Reports state.

Richard Siskey’s case progressed after an Order was signed by U.S. Magistrate Judge David Cayer which purportedly stated that an FBI agent gave an affidavit to the court alleging the property was derived from proceeds derived from violations of U.S. fraud statutes, said North Carolina Court Filings report.

The Peiffer Wolf securities lawyers are monitoring Richard Siskey’s alleged property fraud and would like to talk to investors.

Richard Siskey, Former Father of the Year, was Facing a Government Seizure of His Three Houses, which Included Three Houses on 7.4 Acres Valued at $3.9 Million in 2011

Richard Siskey, a former 2008 Father of the Year, was allegedly facing a government seizure of his three homes, which entailed 7.4 Acres which had been appraised at $3.9 million in 2011, according to News Reports from Charlotte presently being examined by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.

Reports of the entire case are a bit sketchy as the filing in the case does not give any details on the alleged fraud, according to Court reports from North Carolina.

What is more, other documents in the case were allegedly sealed, Court reports from North Carolina reveal.

It was also impossible to gain more information from representatives from the FBI and the US Attorney’s office in Charlotte or more comments, said Court Reports also note.

Siskey, according to reports from Charlotte, worked at Charlotte’s Consolidated Planning Inc., which held specialization in helping business owners with estate, tax and financial planning, and he also owned an investment company with stakes in several local restaurants and computer-consulting companies.

Siskey’s career then grew when, by the mid-1990s, he was doing business with dozens of local entrepreneurs and professionals and Siskey left the firm 18 years ago and has not been affiliated with it since, reports from Charlotte further attest.

Siskey also had his own building named after him in 1999 by Bissell Development on Sharon Road near SouthPark mall, and became the first anchor tenants to commit to office space there, reports from Charlotte note.

Siskey had just celebrated his birthday on Christmas Eve, new reports from Charlotte state.

Unfortunately, Siskey leaves behind two adult children and his wife, said New Reports note.
