Prosecutors allege former Dixion, IL comptroller Rita Crundwell stole $53 million to support her horse business and lavish lifestyle by transferring city funds to a secret account.

It is unknown if Crundwell’s farm manager and boyfriend, Jim McKillips, knew about the alleged theft.

Her horses were handed over to US Marshals after a judge’s forfeiture order was received late last week.
