Tracy Lawrence, the notary public who initiated the robo-signing fraud indictments was found dead in her Las Vegas home on November 28, 2011 at the age of 43. Authorities are still investigating the exact cause of her death.
At the beginning of November this year, Lawrence came forward and admitted to the Nevada Attorney General’s Office that she notarized 25,000 fraudulent documents for Lender Processing Services, a Florida company used by most major banks to process home repossessions. The documents were filed with the Clark County Recorder’s Office between 2005 and 2008, The Los Angeles Times reported.
Lawrence also accused two loan officers, Gary Trafford and Geraldine Sheppard, who both worked for Lender Processing Services, of allegedly running the massive robo-signing scheme, forging signatures on tens of thousands to millions of default notices nationwide.
Her involvement in the robo-signing scandal left her facing up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. Speculations of suicide or natural causes are circulating as the cause of her death, but considering her role in the upcoming criminal prosecution of Trafford and Sheppard, her timely death does spark suspicion of a potential homicide.
