Recession Woes: Financial Adviser Moonlights As Hitman

Police in Los Angeles have arrested a man they believe to be behind the brutal murder of a 35-year-old Russian artist in 2008. Daniel Becerrill II, a financial consultant from Huntington Beach, has been charged with homicide, as well as a number of other crimes, in connection with the murder. Police believe that there were a number of people involved in what they are calling a murder for profit scheme.

Becerril was banned from the financial industry a month ago, after being investigated for embezzling the inheritance of the inheritance a client left for his daughter, according to a report by the LA Times.

Those in the financial industry can no longer get away with murder, at least in the literal sense.
