Tens of millions, alleged murder plot at heart of divorce and family feud
Robert and Janet Foisie divorced in 2011, dividing accounts worth an estimated $40 million and homes in Connecticut, Florida and Nevada.
After 50 years of marriage, the couple, who for years owned homes in Old Saybrook and Noank, wanted to part ways amicably. They hired a private mediator, enabling them to keep most of their financial and personal information out of court and hammer out the details themselves.
They filed their agreement in Superior Court in Norwich, along with sworn statements of their respective assets, and in September 2011 a judge granted their divorce.
Mrs. Foisie's subsequent discovery of a bank account her ex-husband had in Switzerland, containing at least $4.5 million, has shattered the couple's harmonious separation and brought into the public arena their finances and a family feud involving an alleged murder-for-hire plot.
