Victim: Alan J. Abrahamson. Favorite man, according to friends and family. Allegedly happy, according to the same.

“Alan was an avid golfer, loved to travel and loved life,” reads his obituary at the Palm Beach Post. “He woke up every morning with a smile on his face and everyone adored him.”

Abrahamson lived in a $ 900,000 home, at the gates of a luxury country club, within walking distance of the ocean and all the amenities a 71-year-old man could use.
