Mansion Where Tobias Died On Sale

Feb 19 2009 | 12:56am ET

A year and a half after his death, late hedge fund manager Seth Tobias’ widow has put the house where he died on the market.

Filomena Tobias—at one time accused by her husband’s brothers and former assistant of murdering her husband—is seeking $7.8 million for the Jupiter, Fla., mansion. According to the New York Post, the listing on prominently features the swimming pool in which Seth Tobias drowned.

Filomena Tobias settled her probate battle with her husband’s family over the summer, after the two sides traded ugly accusations for almost a year. She agreed to give her late husband’s family some $3.2 million of Tobias’ estimated $35 million estate, and to give his half-brothers, San and Spence, his investment business, New York-based Tobias brothers.

Sam and Spence Tobias accused their sister-in-law of killing Seth, and the hedge fund manager’s former assistant, William Ash, claimed that Filomena had confessed to poisoning him. For her part, Filomena said her husband was a drug addict who accidentally overdosed after a homosexual rendezvous with a male stripper.
