Stacey Feigel’s husband, Sheldon, is facing multiple felony counts related to an alleged scam involving filing fraudulently for adverse possession on abandoned homes. While arriving in court for a hearing, Stacey collapsed from a “cardiac event” (according to the coroner) and died. Attorney Mark Coleman suggested stress from the raid and arrest could have led to her death.
Stacey Feigel appeared fit and healthy and jogged regularly, he said. But she also has been stressed by her husband’s arrest and the commando-style raid on her home when three of their children were present, Coleman said.
Investigators, with guns drawn, entered their home while family members were sleeping or just waking up, Coleman said.
“For Chrissakes, the family had never been in trouble before but police pointed guns at the kids’ heads,” he said.
