Broker and wife who ran 1031 Investment Solutions found dead at home

A Boston-area real estate broker and his wife, found dead over the weekend in their $1.1 million mansion, were reportedly in the middle of a divorce, WCVB reports.

Chester and Shirley Jean Ju, both 64, were the proprietors of 1031 Investment Solutions. Chester Ju was a licensed real estate broker, and Shirley Ju is named as a company officer in records on file with the Secretary of State’s Office, which list the couple’s home as the company’s address, the Boston Herald reports.

Neighbors told the Boston Globe that Shirley Ju loved Halloween, and that the couple’s home was decorated for the holiday. But nobody answered the door when trick-or-treaters knocked Thursday night.

According to an obituary, Shirley Ju is survived by three children. Authorities say they believe the deaths are an “isolated incident” and that there are “no safety concerns for the public.” Source:
