Justice Denied: The Destruction of the Life and Legacy of the He-Coon

Front Cover
Blacknblue Press, 2005 - 355 pages
The "He-Coon" is former U. S. Congressman Bob Sikes, once the most powerful figure in Florida's Panhandle. When he died with a diagnosis of malnutrition and a new secret will surfaced, his daughter retraced his final years and the hijacking of his estate by his new, much younger third wife. She found that during the darkened, helpless final years of his long bout with Alzheimer's disease, Bob Sikes was deprived of medical care, isolated from friends and family, and threatened with being sent to a nursing home if he didn't behave - which made him cry; meanwhile, his wife secretly transferred his assets into her name - with the help of his doctor (a state senator), his secretary, the town mayor, and her friends and her sister. During a decade of court battles, the children and grandchildren of the He-Coon learned that despite copious documentation of evidence, records, and perjury, despite legal precedents and statutes, justice follows political connections and deep pockets.

As a small child I lived in the home on the Sikes property with my parents who became very close with Bob and Joan in the time somewhere around 1990-1993 maybe and the accusations made towards Joan are false myparents will soley back that up Joan loved Bob and put her own health on hold to care for him sorry but I believe this book was written in a piss match over money thats sad I really never remember any of his children coming around to visit just saying
