Robo Signing Notary Public Whistle-blower Found Dead

This story's been well circulated so I wanted to just put in my two cents. It appears powerful people got notary public Tracy Lawrence's, 43, cooperation and eternal silence prior to her being a witness in a massive fraud case against Lenders Procssing Services (LPS). When someone takes her own life due to being under tremendous pressure such as this, it's clear why. 

   

"Tracy Lawrence, 43, had agreed to testify against Geraldine Ann Sheppard, 62, of Santa Ana, Calif., and Gary Randall Trafford, 49, of Irvine, Calif., in a case alleging that tens of thousands of fraudulent foreclosure documents had been filed in Las Vegas, said John Kelleher, a chief deputy Nevada attorney general. Sheppard and Trafford are identified as officers in a publicly traded company, Lender Processing Services Inc., based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., that processes home repossessions for major banks across the country." - CBSNews.com

They were going to let Tracy Lawrence get off with a slap on the wrist of a one year jail sentence and small fine in return for her testimony against the brains behind the fraud.  It makes no sense she couldn't handle what probably would have likely amounted to a six month jail sentence and steady income from potential media appearances.
