Heidi Planck missing update – Jason Sugarman ‘probed over a $43M fraud’ as Reddit & Webslueth users seek LinkedIn clues


HEIDI Planck was last seen at her son’s football game on October 17 and her boss was “probed” over millions in fraud before she disappeared, her ex-husband claims.

The 39-year-old mom’s last known movements are now under police investigation after she appeared “edgy” before suddenly leaving her son’s game.

Police who are looking into the disappearance are looking into her work after her boss was probed over a $43 million fraud, her ex-husband has told The Sun.

Her boss, Jason Sugarman, is accused of stealing “$43 million from unwitting pension funds to finance the acquisition of a global financial conglomerate of European and Bermuda insurers, and investment advisers based in Virginia and Connecticut” according to legal documents obtained by The Sun.

It is not clear what the status of that civil lawsuit is.

Asked about Sugarman, a managing partner at Heidi’s firm Camden Capital, Heidi’s ex-husband Jim Wayne, 63, told The Sun: “Heidi would have been working with him daily, for sure. I know for a fact that the police are looking into that. That’s absolutely one of their lines of inquiry.”

There is no evidence to suggest that Sugarman was involved in Planck’s disappearance, and police have not named him as a suspect or person of interest in her disappearance.

Heidi was captured on security footage the same day she went missing leaving her home with her dog in her gray 2017 Range Rover. Since the disappearance, Reddit and Websleuths users have been commenting on the case.

  • HEIDI’S BOYFRIEND ‘THOUGHT SHE GHOSTED HIM’

    Heidi’s ex-husband Jim Wayne told The Sun on Tuesday that Na’eem Salaam and Heidi had an argument before she went missing and he had assumed that she was “ghosting him” when he didn’t hear from her. 

    The 63-year-old Beverly Hills beauty salon owner stressed that he had no suspicions regarding Na’eem.

    Jim said the couple’s quarrel was over Na’eem feeling obligated to remain up north instead of traveling down to Los Angeles to be with Heidi.

    “He said that they got into an argument because he lives in San Francisco and she wanted him to come down but he couldn’t because he had to work,” said Jim.”

    “As I said, I’m not a detective, but I can pretty much assure you that that’s not it.”

  • WHO FOUND HEIDI’S DOG?

    Heidi’s dog was found on October 17, hours after she left the football game.

    It is unclear who found the dog and when.

    It is also unclear when Heidi’s loved ones discovered her dog had been found alone and where he had been in the three days since she was last seen.

    Jarrod Burguan, a retired San Bernardino police chief, said: “People are very, very attached to their pets, and their pets do not just go missing.

    “There clearly is something out of place here.”

    One friend told CBS: “It seems to us that everything stems from that building where her dog was found.”

    “We have totally different parenting styles,” he said.  

    “I’m a very strict dad. This is not my first rodeo, I’ve got two older kids.

  • SUSPICIOUS BUILDING?

    Residents of an apartment building where missing mom Heidi Planck’s dog was found have raised concerns over ‘criminal activity and guns fired’ at the location.

    Cops have not said how Heidi is connected to the Hope + Flower complex, and reviews on Yelp.com, seen by The Sun, show many disgruntled residents hate the building.

    One reads: “DO NOT MOVE HERE. Resident of 18 months… Plenty of other buildings in the area to chose from. Rent at your own risk.”

    They list 14 alleged issues including theft, “rampant drug use” and “rowdy residents,” claiming security cares more about people wearing masks sunbathing by the pool than following through with neighbor issues.

    A second resident posted last month, warning prospective residents: “DO NOT MOVE HERE!! Don’t fall for the nice amenity spaces and valet parking and make the mistake of thinking this is a luxury building. This is anything but.

  • HEIDI’S DOG FOUND
