Financial Abuse of the Elderly
Marked for Destruction
A True Story
by Officer John Caravella (retired)
What Adele Fraulen might have thought to be nothing more
than a meaningless bad dream one night in 1935 would
actually come true. At age 79 she would find herself living
a nightmare -- a struggle for her life, simply because she
innocently trusted the wrong professionals to help with her
portion of a Million Dollar inheritance; they would steal
her very existence. Her neighbors, Chris and Patricia
Zurillo, would realize that Adele's life was going terribly

Marked For Destruction is a rare book that exposes an
ever-expanding crime against our elderly.

availability for the sake of its sale in PDF format for
$5.49. The book in print will remain available as a retail
