BILLINGS, Mont. – A Wyoming business is asking for a Montana judge to clear the way for the sale of a $ 11 million uninhabited mansion.
Billings Gazette reports that Randy Nelson represents three blind mice seeking to sell the property in Billings.
Nelson says the empty 26,000 square foot castle costs $ 3,000 a month just to heat.
He told Yellowstone County District Court judge Rod Souza that his customers lost $ 100,000 a month as a result of former coal operator Larry Price Jr.'s failure to repay a $ 7.5 million loan.
Price is a former vice president of Signal Peak Energy. He has pleaded guilty to federal charges of wire fraud, money laundering, and lies for federal investigators, after he had built his own abduction in Virginia last year.
