Is There Any Subtle Indication of the Dixon Fraud in the Names of Rita Crundwell’s Horses?

The Associated Press reports that some property of alleged Dixon, Illinois sticky fingers Rita Crundwell will be put up for sale. The property includes her four homes in Illinois, a home in Florida, and a $2.1 million motorhome. So if you're in the market for a place in the Illinois countryside or in a state where zombies are a real threat, then consider look into the matter further.

More interestingly, however, is the list of Crundwell's horses we came across over at the Chicago Tribune. This particular list has 311 of the animals on it, however, the AP report states that the actual number is somewhere between 350 and 400. When you have this many animals, it's probably difficult coming up with clever names after a while but just for fun, we perused the list a bit for clues that might indicate that Ms. Equus-freak was subconsciously slipping any of her alleged crimes into the names of the horses. 

Here are some that might raise an eyebrow:

  • Jewels by Tiffany 
  • Packin Jewels – Crundwell had $340,000 worth of jewels confiscated by the feds.
  • Have Faith in Money
  • Money Is Hot
  • Secure with Cash
  • She Scores

A few that qualify as weird:

  • Angry Birds
  • Fruit Ninja
  • Will N Kate

And one just for irony's sake:

  • Attest

Are there others? Take a gander.
