Illinois officials say residents have been able to collect more than $15 million from lost or unclaimed life insurance policies this year with help from the Department of Insurance. Illinois Department of Insurance Director Robert Muriel says about 25 percent of life insurance policies aren’t paid to beneficiaries because family members are unaware of the coverage or don’t have necessary paperwork. Muriel says residents can get help finding insurance policies issued to a deceased family member by filing a request online . He says insurance companies are legally required to try and locate someone’s beneficiaries, but residents who think an insurer failed to pay can get help from the state.

Dephne (DEF'-nee) Wright of Houston was convicted Friday of capital murder of multiple persons and solicitation of capital murder. Prosecutors didn't seek the death penalty for the fatal beatings of Long Nguyen and his wife, Huong Ly (LEE) in Arlington. Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney Sam Williams said Tuesday that Wright was the couple's "spiritual adviser" hired to help turn around their failing commercial sewing business. Williams says the couple had $850,000 in life insurance and Wright knew the beneficiary, expected some funds and planned to pay $10,000 to men to attack them. One suspect was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life in prison. A second suspect testified for the prosecution. … [Read more...] about ‘Spiritual adviser’ to slain Texas couple gets life term
