Murder Victim's Batman Warehouses Looted

ben-200pxBen Novack Jr, heir to the Fontainebleau hotelier fortune, was found murdered, bound and gagged in his Hilton Rye Town hotel room in July.

Now it appears that his vast collection of Batman comics and memorabilia, filling four warehouses, has been stolen. Believed to the the second largest suchcollection in the world, it was worth many millions of dollars. According to the Miami Herald, locks on the warehouses were cut.

His family are already engaged in a court battle over the estate and have accused each other of arranging Novack’s murder, which remains unsolved, and have engaged in a public fistfight over the matter. The comparison to a Batman-style plot has already been noted by many.

If any one is approached by someone wishing to sell large amounts of valuable Batman comics and merchandise, they should contact the Rye Brook police department.
