"Where is Eric Conn Betting Pool" set up by Kentucky attorney

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Eric C. Conn, the Kentucky attorney behind one of the largest disability fraud cases in the nation, has been on the run since June.

Now, another Kentucky attorney is taking bets on where Conn might be hiding.

Ned Pillersdorf represents Conn's clients. He started the "Where is Eric Conn Betting Pool." There are four options: Cuba, the Marshall Islands, Thailand, and Kentucky.

Pillersdorf says all wagers will be donated to the Floyd County animal shelter.

"There's been a lot of public fascination as to where he is, so we're hoping to seize on that public interest to hopefully raise some money for the animal shelter," Pillersdorf said.

Conn pleaded guilty in March to his role in a $550 million social security fraud scheme. His ankle monitor was found along I-75 in Lexington in June 2017.
