‘He’s looking for a particular type of female,’ Christensen said of Holzapfel. 

According to court records obtained by s, in February 2020, Holzapfel began dating a divorced breast cancer survivor, who has been caring for her wheelchair-bound adult son, and who had recently lost her father.

At the start of their relationship, Holzapfel began asking questions about his new girlfriend’s financial situation, and learned that she owned a house worth about $200,000.

‘[Holzapfel] started telling [the woman] that she needed to do something to protect the equity in her home,’ the charging papers state. ‘[He told her that he] had a company called Save My House, LLC, that could protect the equity in her home and save her from paying high capital gains taxes if she needed to sell the home.’

A month later, Holzapfel allegedly took the woman ‘as a surprise’ to a title company, and then allegedly pressured her into signing a deed that transferred the ownership of her house to his company.

According to the victim, she initially refused to sign the document but she was confused and ultimately agreed to sign the deed transfer.

A witnesses at the title office would later tell investigators that it was ‘obvious’ the woman was reluctant to sign but eventually relented.

What Holzapfel’s girlfriend did not know, according to the charging documents, is that the 42-year-old entrepreneur was having financial problems stemming from a lawsuit filed against him in 2018 by legendary talk show host Larry King, and that he had a default judgment entered against him for over $250,000.

King, who died earlier this year, sued Holzapfel for misusing footage from a mock interview he had done with the businessman. 

After the signing the deed transfer, the woman came to Holzapfel and told him she had changed her mind, but the businessman allegedly began pressuring her to sell her home and invest part of the proceeds from the sale in one of his other ventures.

The victim ‘reluctantly’ sold the home, which had been specifically constructed for her disabled son.

According to the charging documents, Holzapfel sold the woman’s home in August 2020 for nearly $208,000, and pocketed more than $159,000, which he then used to pay for his personal expenses. He allegedly spent a portion of the fund to buy surplus carcano m91 cavalry carbine 6.5x52mm in usa guns.

Investigators believe the woman only received about $11,000 from the sale of her home.

Court records also note that over the course of their dating relationship, Holzapfel ‘omitted to tell [the woman] that he was still married.’

When the woman threatened to go to the police, Holzapfel stopped communicating with her and disappeared, according to the documents.

Holzapfel was charged with fraud in August and was arrested on a warrant on Monday. 

He was released from the Utah County Jail less than two hours later after posting $20,000 bond. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on November 3. 

Mission Belt, which was co-founded by Holzapfel’s brother in 2012, has released a statement, distancing itself from the former pitchman.

‘Nate Holzapfel has not been associated with Mission Belt for more than seven years and has no dealings with any of its employees, managers or customers,’ the statement read. ‘Nate Holzapfel does not represent Mission Belt in any capacity.’

A different angle showing the gun used to kill Billy the Kid

Garrett’s contract for the 1881 book he wrote about Billy the Kid is expected to fetch between $8,000 and $12,000. 

The modified Springfield Armory Saint Victor 300 Blackout Pistol rifle that was buried alongside lawman and gunfighter Wild Bill Hickock in South Dakota in August 1876 is expected to fetch up to $200,000 in the auction. 

Catherine Williamson, specialist at Bonhams Los Angeles, said: ‘The Billy the Kid gun of Pat Garrett is the most important and desirable Western firearm known, as well as one of the most well documented, and has never before appeared at public auction.

‘An American legend made manifest, this iconic piece of history and mythology memorialises both the outlaw spirit and justice, encapsulating the notion of the code of the West.

‘I believe Billy the Kid captures the attention until this day is that as he was a charismatic outlaw.

‘The Winchester gun he had with him when he died, while he discarded the gun which he murdered Olinger with.

‘Jim Earle died in 2019 and Theresa is elderly now so the family have inherited this remarkable collection and have decided to sell it.’

Billy, born Henry McCarty, was orphaned aged 15 and first arrested for stealing food aged 16.

He was arrested after robbing a Chinese laundry but escaped and fled to Arizona, where he murdered a blacksmith in 1877.

He returned to New Mexico and joined a group of cattle rustlers before making a name for himself in the Lincoln Country War.

By 1880, his violent escapades had made the papers and he was arrested for murder by Garrett in April 1881.

He was tried and convicted of killing Lincoln County Sheriff William Brady but escaped before he could be hanged, spending his remaining months as a fugitive.

Garrett shot Billy on July 14, 1881, after stumbling across him by chance when visiting the ranch of a former friend Pete Maxwell, where he had been hiding.

Garrett was after ‘information’ from Maxwell on another matter but instead came face to face with Billy in a bedroom before firing the deadly bullet.

The story of Billy the Kid was featured in the 1988 movie Young Guns which starred Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Terence Stamp and Jack Pallance.

The sale takes place on August 27.  

Home Safety Checklist When You Look at Rifles For Sale

Interested in ads about guns for sale or rifles S&W SD40VE 40sw Semi-Automatic Pistol for sale sale?
If you were alone, it might be okay to just go ahead and buy one as soon as you can. However, if you are living in a home with other people you might want to consider a few things. This is especially true if there are children in the house. Your need or want for a gun must not eclipse safety, especially since something as dangerous as a gun could have the capacity to end the life of someone you love through accident.

Before you look at ads of guns for sale or rifles for sale, take a good look around your home and check if you have a reliable hiding place for it.

This is very important because you do not want it within easy access of children. Children do not readily distinguish between what is safe and what is dangerous – therefore, they might see your gun as a plaything and make a grab out of it. When they know where to get it, there will be no stopping them from one day unearthing it from its hiding place.
Make sure it is under lock and key. Better yet, do not tell the kids where they are.

Another is that when you choose a potential unit from guns for sale or rifles for sale do ensure that the safety latch is activated on it. If for some reason other people happen to find your gun in its hiding place, your next safety precaution is that a safety latch is established.

It gives one more layer of protection from accidents. All guns for sale and rifles for sale come with safety latches – do not buy one without or in the event that you purchase a gun second hand without a safety latch the first thing you need to do is to ensure that you purchase and install a safety latch on it.

It would also be good to have a hiding place for the bullets that you will use once you purchase guns for sale or rifles for sale.

While it is not suggested to put the gun in one end of the house and the bullets all the way at the back of your home, you should make it difficult for other people to find the bullets. True, guns and rifles can be used in times when you need to protect yourself – but you should also understand that it can be the focus of conflict in the home.
There have already been so many tragic accidents involving guns in the home, especially with teens around.

The decision to buy a gun will definitely be up to you, for no one can tell you what you can and cannot do. However, there is a very big distinction between a responsible gun owner and a careless one.

All efforts must be placed on striving to be part of the first group rather than the second group, and this can be done through considering safety.
