A grandfather clock is seen labeled for auction inside the personal residence, one of the two Dixon, Ill., homes owned by former town comptroller Rita Crundwell on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, during a tour provided by the U.S. Marshals Service for prospective property buyers and the media. Crundwell pleaded guilty last month to embezzling $53 million from the small city in Illinois to fund a lavish lifestyle that included a nationally known horse-breeding operation. The spoils of Crundwell's looting are on the auction block, being sold for pennies on the dollar by the U.S. Marshals Service. (AP Photo/Sauk Valley Media, Alex T. Paschal)
