‘Vanished’ Millionaire Guma Aguiar’s Estate Divided among Heirs


guma-aguiarThe estate of Guma Aguiar, the Jewish philanthropist who disappeared off Fort Lauderdale in June, 2012, has been divided among his heirs by a Florida court.

The court approved a compromise agreed upon by Aguiar’s wife, Jamie, and his mother, Ellen, along with his sisters Adriana and Angelika.

The sides had been in conflict over the estate, with each side claiming all of the estate for itself, and Jamie insisting at first that her husband was still alive.

Jamie will receive the huge and ornate penthouse at the Mamila neighborhood, which was renovated and designed at a high cost. The mother, Ellen, and the two sisters will receive eight homes that Aguiar owned in the Yemin Moshe neighborhood and the Jewish Quarter. An assessor estimated the worth of the eight properties at $27 million, while the penthouse was valued at $17 million. Read more here.
