The personal residence belonging to former Dixon, Ill., comptroller Rita Crundwell is seen Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, ahead of the closing of an online auction for items in the house. The home, along with another she owned in the small Illinois town, and a horse ranch were opened for a tour provided by the U.S. Marshals Service to prospective property buyers and the media. Crundwell pleaded guilty last month to embezzling $53 million from the town 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)
