A man claiming to be a veteran of the Polish underground said his group had carried out a postwar revenge murder of a Nazi general in East Germany, and had found a Rubens oil painting hidden in a rolled carpet under his bed.

And as if to prove that hell hath no fury like a spouse scorned, the company’s phone has barely stopped ringing since Divorce magazine profiled owners Orlene Brown, 54, and Cheryl Mabley, 50.
