  • Search warrant carried out at home of New Jersey couple accused of misusing money raised for homeless man

McClure and D'Amico raised the money starting late previous year to buy Bobbitt, among other things, his own home and his "dream" truck: a 1999 Ford Ranger. Here the lady had the thought of the great act as the foundation which was launched with the name GoFundMe went viral as there were many campaigns led by the couple.

A judge ordered the couple to wire remaining money into a trust set up for Bobbitt, and the judge will determine how the money will be managed. The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

Instead, on September 4, Gizmodo reports, the couple's counsel told a judge that all of the funds are gone, despite initially claiming through their lawyer that there was still plenty of money left.

While it's unclear where the bulk of the $75,000 Bobbitt allegedly received went, he has admitted to spending some of the money on drugs, Forbes reported.

With the help of two pro bono lawyers, Bobbitt sued McClure and D'Amico for the missing money last week. Further information on the search wasn't immediately released.

At the time, the amount of the remaining funds was in dispute. Bobbitt is starting a 30-day rehab program, his lawyer said in court on Wednesday.

WPVI, the ABC television affiliate in Philadelphia, reports that an attorney for McClure and D'Amico tried to assert a Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination for his clients.

However, the feel-good story of the year quickly went sour, when it was revealed that not only was Bobbitt reportedly frozen out from the cash raised on his behalf, but McClure and D'Amico were using the money to fund a lavish lifestyle complete with BMWs and European vacations.

"Shocked. Shocked", Fallon said.

Badway did not account for the rest but told the judge that they are now preparing the accounting that will "show where the money went". "You're gonna end up with nothing and that's what I was trying to avoid", he wrote. "He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong".

The screenshot provided by Fallon does not show any response from Bobbitt. "I don't want that either".

Dow on Wednesday twice admonished Badway for "grandstanding". The judge refused, saying it was outside her court rules.

"As of this time, there have been no charges filed", Coffina said in the statement Thursday morning. He has earlier declined to comment.

GoFundMe and the law firm representing Bobbitt said he will receive all the money raised for him.

"We'll continue to assist with the ongoing law enforcement investigation", the GoFundMe statement continued.

In court on Thursday, the couple agreed to let a forensic accountant open up their books to see where those fundraising dollars were deposited.
