DIXON - An online furniture auction of indicted former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell will conclude Saturday. Federal marshalls are hoping to recoup some of the approximately $53 million Crundwell allegedly stole over 22 years from her hometown's coffers. Crundwell faces up to 20 years for her activities.
Information about the auction and items being sold are on the US Marshals website.
Photographers and reporters were allowed a tour of the Western-themed Grundwell home Friday. A vivid description of her main house is featured in the Chicago Tribune, includes this Alex Garcia photo of Grundwell's luxurious master bedroom:
