BOCA RATON — A ghoulish auction is set to take place Saturday in Boca Raton — at the home where once mighty developer Greg Talbott committed suicide in May.
The bankruptcy sale is an attempt to make dozens of his creditors somewhat whole and includes Talbott’s 2006 Bentley Flying Spur, Blue Book value $70,000, dozens of guns and hundreds of boxes of ammunition.
It’s yet another Gossip Extra exclusive: The auction is set for 11 a.m tomorrow, Apt. 11 A at 300 East Royal Palm Road.
The extensive catalog also includes household furniture, home decor items, antiques, small appliances, clothes, shoes, accessories, fishing rods, art, electronics and various other items.
Talbott, 58, who built hundreds of luxury condos in and around Boca Raton, was pushed into involuntary bankruptcy before he shot himself in the head with a handgun May 14. He died in a hospital hours later.
The flamboyant, hard-charging Talbott was indirectly a victim of the real estate crash of the mid-2000s — despite the fact he once was one of Palm Beach County’s largest single landowners.
Last year, three creditors filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Talbott’s name because they were unable to recuperate a total $3 million they invested in his projects.
