Slain Texas Housekeeper Had $5M in Life Insurance Policies

Court documents show a North Texas housekeeper who was fatally stabbed in an alleged life insurance scam had $5 million worth of policies in her name.

Police allege Bernard "Little Joe" Gorman and his father, Gerard "Joe" Gorman killed 69-year-old Anita Fox last September in the hope of collecting on a $1 million policy she didn't know existed.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Sunday that the other polices are noted in lawsuits filed by the Colleyville woman's family to collect payment.

The insurance companies have said the policies may have been obtained fraudulently and that it remains unclear whether Fox knew they existed.

Bernard Gorman has been charged with Fox's murder and remains free on bail. Gerard Gorman died of natural causes in January.
