Just makes you want to say "hmmmm"

The Tex Parte Blog is reporting that Grand County (Colorado) coroner is investigating the death of Texas attorney Mina Brees this weekend. Ms. Brees was the mother of New Orleans Saints' quarterback Drew Brees and the sister of former Longhorn QB Marty Akins.

Ms. Brees bought herself some unfavorable publicity when she scooped up the expired assumed names certificates for several Austin and Houston restaurants earlier this year. The Texas Attorney General's Office began investigating Ms. Brees for possible violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act as a result of letters she sent to restaurant owners offering to sell their assumed names back in exchange for a fee.

Hmmmm. I hope she didn't eat at one of the restaurants she attempted to extort.
