An Alleged $500 Million Ponzi Scheme Preyed on Mormons. It Ended With FBI Gunfire.

From a Washington Post story by Lizzie Johnson headlined “An alleged $500 million Ponzi scheme preyed on Mormons. It ended with FBI gunfire.”:

LAS VEGAS — The FBI arrived at the only house on this stretch of Ruffian Road at 1:25 p.m., parking out front of the $1.6 million property, hedged by empty lots of scrub and dust.

The three agents approached the camera-equipped doorbell at the home’s perimeter, pressing it once. Then they pushed past an unlocked gate, cut through the courtyard and rapped against the glass French doors of Matthew Beasley’s home.
