Unethical Museum Deserves Investigation

Unethical Museum Deserves Investigation

Our Florida Department of Children and Families has taken my report, but has no jurisdiction over elder financial abuse once the elder dies. But it has honored my request and referred to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement the matter of the Daytona Museum of Arts and Sciences:
1. Promising Kenneth Worcester Dow to preserve nine (9) homes built 1790-1910;
2. Taking $2 million in scarce state historic preservation funds to preserve the buildings, including $30,000 to stabilize CARPENTER'S HOUSE;
3. Selling the buildings to speculator DAVID BARTON CORNEAL for $1.7 million, resulting in one of the preserved buildings already being destroyed (CARPENTER'S HOUSE).
If laws were broken, the State's Attorney, RALPH JOSEPH LARIZZA, must prosecute the Daytona Museum of Arts and Sciences, et al.
As to the $2 million the Florida Secretary of State paid to DMOAS, may we have it back please?
And let's ask the City or the Dow Estate to sue DAVID BARTON CORNEAL to take back the Dow Museum of Historic Homes and preserve it as a museum, perhaps as part of the St. Augustine National Historical Park and National Seashore.
