Any lawyer specializing in the probate and estate planning field has heard many stories of people going to great lengths to maximize what they can leave for their children. This one ranks right up there with the best of them.
Elsie Poncher's late husband is currently buried in a crypt directly on top of Marilyn Monroe. He's been there for the last 23 years. Poncher owns the tomb right next to it, and plans to move her husband into it so she can sell the one directly above Monroe. Why? So she can -- hopefully -- raise enough money to pay off the mortgage on her Beverly Hills home. Poncher wants to leave the valuable property free and clear to her children.
But the mortgage is 1.6 million dollars. So where did Poncher turn to raise so much cash? To Ebay of course. You can see the sale listing here. The bidding opened at $500,000. Right now, the highest bid is $4.5 million -- and there are still several days to go!
