"…There were attempted fraudulent wire transfers from a financial account belonging to the murder victim Pamela Hargan. The attempted wire transfers were done on the day before the murder and the day of the murder," the detective wrote.

The warrant says the wire transfer was in the name of another of Pamela Hargan's daughters. She has not been named as a suspect.
