Henry “Cab” Tice has been mentioned as a person of interest in the murder investigation of the murders of Byrd “Bud” and Melanie Billings. Sources have told us that the authorities are focusing on whether Tice paid Patrick Gonzalez, Jr. to kill the Billings during a home invasion on July 9.
In 2008, Deborah Tice, the ex-wife of Cab Tice and an officer and shareholder of Hispanic-American Auto Sales, filed a lawsuit against the company, Cab Tice and Lucy Stolfi, an officer of the company.
In the suit, Ms. Tice claimed that her ex-husband improperly appropriated funds for his personal use; failed to report income on the sale of company owned vehicles; and failed to disclose his involvement and activities with the dealership to the State of Florida.
Ms. Tice also asserted that Cab Tice was “committing acts which were illegal and fraudulent to the creditors” of Hispanic-American Auto Sales. Bud Billings’ Worldco Financial Services was a creditor of Hispanic-American Auto Sales (UCC).
Cab Tice did countersue his ex-wife for “improperly appropriating corporate funds for her own personal benefit by withdrawing $30,000 from the corporation as President.”
The lawsuit was later voluntary dismissed. In an email to the IN, Ms. Tice stated that the “lawsuit was filed with the charges as they were to defend me against the possibility of Cab and Lucy (Stolfi) suing and winning against me for the $30,000. I never proved any of the charges that were made against him. I gave up and got a divorce just to have it over.”
