    Nurse investigated for becoming beneficiary of dying man's $939,000 will

    A Melbourne nurse who mysteriously became the sole beneficiary of a dying man's $939,000 wealth is being investigated by the nurses' board.

    Last winter, Lionel Markey Cox, a 92-year-old bachelor with no close family, was taken to Cambridge House nursing home in Collingwood because he was too weak to stay in the Fitzroy house where he'd lived most of his life.

    I hope Mr Cox at least got a happy ending out of the deal.

    Apart from being dead and therefore having no emotions, I'm sure he would have preferred to go out with a bang.
