quarterback this season, went missing sunday morning after going for a walk. worry soon spread across a campus with an enrollment of about 750. everybody knows everybody but when something like this happens, its not a number; its a person and its a kid. the sheboygan county sheriffs dive team searched a pond just a few yards from the football field wednesday. shortly after noon, they recovered oneals body. we consider them our kids and we lost one of our kids today. the sheriffs office says oneals death does not appear suspicious. still, theyre investigating to find out how the student ended up in the just asking why, you know, what happened? and i think were all wondering that. it is finals week here at lakeland university. given that and todays news... its a very stressful week for the students on this campus. in rural sheboygan county, a.j. bayatpour, fox 6 news. they call him taco tim. he's a wisconsin businessman who got elderly investors to bankroll his plan to sell taco-shaped fortune cookies. but
investors and left some retirees in financial ruin. any good investor knows the keys to making money are principal... interest... and time. "i'm... workin' on 81 now."for jim frank and his wife, carol. time is precious. "we're too old to go back to work again."when the stock market crashed in 2008, their retirement they thought it was meant to be when a local businessman offered to pay them 12-percent interest for a one-year loan. "we put a lot of blind faith..." "we certainly did." "..in what he said." seven years later, they have nothing to show for it but
"hey tim, bryan polcyn with fox 6 news, could i have a minute?"now, the state of wisconsin is taking action against a man they once considered a trusted friend. "they found that he definitely had committed fraud."jim and carol frank had paid off their modest farmstead northwest of milwaukee. until timothy mcquistion mortgage... and give him the money. 'he was able to get money from anyone.'mcquiston is president of "lucky taco," a now-defunct hustisford business that was supposed to produce
wrapped in plastic."they loaned him 30-thousand dollars to launch the business. then 100-thousand more... and 35-thousand more after that. 'he was wanting to buy a larger machine to fulfill a large order.'but mcquiston complained of equipment problems... and health problems... so the business never got off the ground. and he never paid them back. "why don't you stop and talk to me?"when we first approached mcquiston last year, he locked himself inside lucky taco. then, changed his mind and requested an interview. 'i have a great product."he insisted lucky taco was a good idea that just didn't pan out. 'that happens. businesses fail all the time.' 'thatsit. they do.' t that's not what him in trouble th the statefionsin.e sn new machine i tta buy?tim quisto southeastern wisconsin."i was flabbergasted!e failed to mention he already had other investors. "we practically fell on the floor."by the time the fox 6 investigators got involved, mcquiston owed at least eighteen people more than 2-point-6 million dollars. "nobody knew about each other. everybody thought they were the only person doin' this." 'why didn't you tell the investors about each other?''well, um, it wasnt asked and i, that wasnt pertinent at the time. i
to mention that the tens of thousands of dollars in delinquent taxes he owes to the state and federal government. plus, more than a million dollars in unpaid court judgments. "they didn't ask, you didn't tell." "right."all tolled, mcquiston now appears to be more than 4-million dollars in debt. "who knows where that money actually went to pay for rent, utilities and trade shows. but the franks wonder if some of it may have ended up on the vintage car racing circuit. the same month the franks first loaned money to mcquiston, a lucky taco sponsored race car crashed in a road race in mexico. a week after the race, mcquiston hit them up for another loan. 'the more you learn, the deeper it seems to go.'neither
attorney found evidence that a crime had been committed. but after our investigation, the wisconsin department of financial institutions launched its own investigation. and in september, the state ordered mcquiston to cease and desist all offers or sales of securities. 'too many people have been defrauded by him.'that means he can't raise money anymore. and now, he's trying to avoid the debts he already owes. in october, he filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy. "we're gonna fight it."the franks can't afford their own lawyer, but they don't think a fraudulent debt court. in other words, if saving their home means putting up a fight... they'll make time. the u-s trustee has already recommended the bankrputcy case be thrown out, because mcquiston owes too much money. under chapter 13, there are limits to how much debt you can wipe away... and he is over the limit by a lot. mcquiston told the court he is reviewing his options and will decide what to do next by the next hearing scheduled for january 10th. bryan polcyn, fox 6 investigators.
