Running Horse developer’s death blamed on diabetes

Authorities have blamed the death of the co-developer of the failed Running Horse Country Club project on complications from diabetes.
 
The Fresno County, Calif., coroner’s report said that Scott Webb, 46, had been found dead in a Fresno motel room in September. He apparently had died several days before the body was discovered.
 
The disclosure of Webb’s death came shortly after the state Department of Real Estate revoked his license after he did not challenge accusations that he and his partners defrauded investors in the proposed high-end project.
 
Running Horse was to be a 780-home community development with a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, however, only a few homes were constructed before the developers ran out of money.

I did not "enjoy" this story. It is very sad for everyone involved. For such a young person to die and for so many people to lose out on an investment. Sometime automatic advertising should be reviewed on how it looks with a particular story. Shame on you
