    Since Phyllis Mizioch was murdered last summer, her survivors have been fighting in federal court over who should get the $4.5 million life-insurance payout.
    Peter J. Mizioch, the widower and named beneficiary on two insurance policies, claims he is entitled to the money.
    But her adult children allege in U.S. District Court complaints that their stepfather was responsible for the homicide and should be barred from receiving the money under Arizona law. They have no direct evidence of his involvement, but they say in court filings that his connection to other murder victims with large life-insurance policies that named him or a close associate as beneficiary - a pattern documented in an Arizona Republic investigation in February - is a powerful circumstantial string of events.

    Oh wow, very interesting! If this man is responsible I hope it can be proven. It does seem like a lot to just be coincidence. I hope that the children can get the answers they need about their mom's murder in the process.

    Peter Mizioch pleaded guilty Wednesday in a plea deal with prosecutors to a $700,000 tax fraud. The article doesn't mention the sentence, or when it will be. The video at the link shows his angry lawyer barging into a reporter outside but Mizioch didn't comment as he left the court. The anger may have something to do with an investigative show the station is doing on the murder of Mizioch's business partners and wife:

    His insurance agent, James Bieleniewicz, was also charged in the tax fraud but I'm not sure if his case has been heard yet.

    Phyllis Mizioch's children lost their wrongful death suit claim against Peter Mizioch and the insurance company (who had refused to pay out) were told by a judge they had to hand over the $4.5 million benefits to Peter Mizioch. He's collected a total of $8 million from all the insurance policies he's taken out on people who have later been killed. By an unknown gunman.

    "The family of Phyllis Mizioch, who said the couple was about to divorce, also filed a wrongful-death lawsuit that was later dismissed."

    ****************

    All it says, in this article, about the lawsuit from the family is that it was dismissed.

    Maybe now they will be able to find some evidence and put this guy away for the murders that he allegedly commited.

    I figured it out (about the lawsuits). He won on the life insurance payout claim.
    It looks like they dismissed the civil suit.

    A Phoenix man who collected millions of dollars in death benefits after three different business partners and his wife were murdered has apparently died while on a cruise.

    Peter Mizioch passed away this weekend, according to Crime Watch Daily, a nationally-syndicated crime show that spoke to family members Monday.

    The cause of death wasn’t immediately known.

    It’s the latest twist in a decades-long saga and it comes just two weeks after an ABC15 report that focused on Mizioch pleading guilty to federal tax evasion charges.

    After Mizioch pleaded guilty, a federal judge allowed him to take a Disney cruise before his sentencing.

    The timing of his death comes just days before Crime Watch Daily was set to air a months-long investigation into Mizioch’s ties to the four unsolved murders. The show’s investigation airs Tuesday.

    I am pretty sure we'll find out the rat bast*** took some pills and went to sleep, for good. Coward- and these idiotic judges. WTH? Oh yes, one last hurrah on a Disney cruise, makes sense. WTF. If the investigative reporter hadn't been all over this we probably never would have heard about any of it. Makes me wonder if this man was into bribing Judges along the way too.
