It's about time, and the sad thing is he spent it all on heroin

The sad thing is someone trusted him.

this was his own uncle's estate and the people he screwed over were his cousins, his uncle and his own father.

the saddest and most disgusting thing is that it was his father's brother's estate. He screwed over his own father, his other uncle and his cousins (the children of the deceased) and it was a lot more than 200,000 all the while telling them he was handling everything.

yes he was handling it alright right over to his heroin dealer. I hope they are holding him in jail where he belongs, because this is not his first estate theft, right cliffy?
