Lawsuit alleges that kids stole $24 million from mom with dementia


When Champlin developer Duane Engels died in 2005, he had every reason to rest in peace. His hard work developing houses and apartment buildings left a substantial fortune that was sure to keep his widow, Beverly, comfortable until her dying day.

But according to a recent lawsuit filed by her court-appointed conservator, the couple’s three children allegedly stripped $24 million from her estate as she slipped deeper into dementia, leaving the 79-year-old resident of a Rogers memory-care facility destitute unless something is done to recoup the funds.
