“An accused killer and United Nations gang leader, wanted since January in the murder of a rival, slipped back into B.C. in April to transfer his $1.6-million house into his wife’s name.
And now the palatial Burnaby residence, that was owned solely by Conor Vincent D’Monte when he was charged with murder five months ago, has been put up for sale. D’Monte and co-accused Cory Vallee are on Interpol’s Most Wanted List after being charged Jan. 24 with first-degree murder in the 2009 Langley slaying of Red Scorpion Kevin LeClair. … D’Monte, 33, attended a Metrotown law office on April 1, 2011 to sign over his Burnaby house to wife, Jennifer Kong. … Kong, who just started working as a realtor in 2011, hung up on a Sun reporter Sunday when asked about the property transfer. …
The house was built in 1988 and the annual taxes are just over $6,000. It was assessed in 2011 at $1.2 million, and is listed for $1.58 million. …
D’Monte listed his occupation as “worker” when he bought the house in 2006 for $900,000. Police say his job was to lead the day-to-day operations of the UN gang, of which he is an original member.” – Vancouver Sun, 19 Jun 2011

OR $900K house bought with cash gets no questions asked.
