Developing Story: Arrested Developer Escapes
A daring daytime escape by George Bluth, Sr. leads to questions and answers, but answers are for the wrong questions.
George Bluth, Sr., in prison awaiting a grand jury’s decision on adding treason charges to the embezzlement charges, escaped from a local hospital yesterday. Police have few answers at this hour, releasing only a terse statement saying they had not yet found the fugitive developer or a scapegoat, but they were hot on the tail of both.
Precious few facts are known, but we have faith that the following information is true: the S.E.C. originally arrested Bluth for defrauding investors. Following his arrest, the Bluth Company named Michael Bluth president. While outwardly reassuring investors that the Company would engage in sound business practices, Michael instead fell prey to the same temptations that led to his father’s arrest. Michael routinely lied to investors, then sent his son and niece to break into a permit office to cover his lies. Michael also allegedly committed insurance fraud when he burned down the company’s remaining asset, the banana stand. And in perhaps his greatest mistake, Michael sent his brother G.O.B. to seduce his father’s mistress Kitty Sanchez to gain access to some missing files.
When G.O.B. failed to get the information, Michael decided to fire Sanchez. Instead of intimidating Sanchez, the firing infuriated her, and she turned to government investigators. But it was not until a report by FOX 6 news personality John Beard aired that investigators realized the Bluth Company’s potential involvement with Iraq’s desposed dictator Saddam Hussein.
George, Sr. was brought in for questioning, and against the advice of his attorney Barry Zuckerkorn, agreed to a polygraph test. During the questioning, George, Sr. suffered from an apparent heart attack, and was rushed to the hospital. While the hospital staff left George, Sr. unattended, he escaped, leaving behind only a yarmulke and a syringe. Investigators now believe the syringe was used to induce a seizure during the polygraph exam.
Investigators aren’t commenting on the whereabouts of George, Sr., but The O.P.’s Chopper Infinity Plus One caught video of a stairway vehicle heading towards Mexico. The staircar is the last remaining vestige of the Bluth Company. Named sources, who refused to share their name with us, said they believe Bluth and Sanchez were using a staircar to flee the country.
Stay with The O.P. for continuing coverage of fugitive developer George Bluth, Sr.’s daring daytime escape from custody.
