Father and son Paul and Gregg Jarrett were murdered as they slept: Living A Nightmare investigates

Police Tape

Living A Nightmare is investigating the execution-style murder of psychiatrist Dr. Paul Jarrett and his adult son Gregg Jarrett at their home in Florida in 2003, in a crime that shocked the community.

In July 2003, 82-year-old Paul and his son 47-year-old Gregg were sleeping at their home in Coral Gables in southern Florida, when two intruders broke into the house.

The two criminals were Juan Carlos Fernandez and Jose Barco, and they had been directed to break into the doctor’s home by Maria Catabay, who was Paul’s former office manager. Fernadez was Catabay’s boyfriend at the time, and she had tasked him with recovering an incriminating letter from the doctor.

The Miami Herald reported that the letter detailed admission of guilt from Catabay that she had embezzled her employer’s money. For reasons that are unclear, Paul and Greg were both shot dead as they slept.

Fernandez and Barco accused each other of shooting the Jarretts

When the police caught up to them, both Fernandez and Barco blamed each other for the actual shooting. Barco was put on trial and was found guilty of murder and sent to prison for the rest of his life.

The situation was a bit more complicated with Fernandez as he was deemed to be suffering from mental illness. He was placed in a secure psychiatric hospital for nearly ten years as various judges debated whether or not he mentally fit to stand trial.

He was eventually put on trial 13 years after the murder; however, his lawyers argued that he was coerced into the crime and that he had been in a fragile mental state which had been exacerbated by a head injury. He was subsequently found guilty and sentenced to 30 years in prison.

At the sentencing, Fernandez apologized to the victims’ family and asked for forgiveness. He also asked them to pray for him.

Maria Catabay was also sent to prison for 30 years due to her role in setting up the burglary.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
