Authorities say 42-year-old Chris Wayne Duncan and 36-year-old Robin Ann Duncan hired a private investigator to locate foreclosed and vacant properties in Orange County. After finding the home on Hidden Pass, investigators say the pair drafted a fake lease so utility companies would put bills in their name as renters.
