A notary public who signed tens of thousands of false documents in a massive foreclosure scam before blowing the whistle on the scandal has been found dead in her Las Vegas home. NBC station KSNV of Las Vegas reported that the woman, Tracy Lawrence, 43, was scheduled to be sentenced Monday morning after she pleaded guilty this month to notarizing the signature of an individual not in her presence. She failed to show up for her hearing, and police found her body at her home later in the day. It could not immediately be determined whether Lawrence, who faced up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000, died of suicide or of natural causes, KSNV reported. Detectives said they had ruled out homicide. Lawrence came forward earlier this month and blew the whistle on the operation, in which title officers Gary Trafford, 49, of Irvine, Calif., and Geraldine Sheppard, 62, of Santa Ana, Calif. — who worked for a Florida processing company used by most major banks to process repossessions — allegedly forged signatures on tens of thousands of default notices from 2005 to 2008.


Cannot determine if she died of natural causes or suicide but it TOTALLY wasn't murder guys. Sounds a little fishy to me. It would seem she has made a large number of enemies. Not just the people she reported, but also the people that she helped to screw. We have all heard about people being 'suicided' before. Wondering if this gal was too.

Thanks. That OP is much better than mine too. Also thank you for not pulling the 'learn to use the search engine' BS on me.

Looks like it's most likely murder. ...No one would suicide over 1 year in jail and a $2000 fine.

Good catch. S&F&
