Surrey homicide victim appeared on Dr.Phil show

Surrey’s latest murder victim is well known to police on both sides of the border and even appeared on a popular US TV show recently about men who defrauded their wives.

Delta real estate agent Sheri Brown says she lost $50,000 dollars to her then-husband 52 year old Timothy Szabolscsi , who used fake identities and lied about his professions.

He was found dead in his South Surrey home Friday.

Brown says the ex couple even appeared on a Dr.Phil episode which aired in March.

“I felt like I could keep quiet about this, and it was probably in my best interest to keep quiet about it for my career, my business, my kids, my family, but I didn’t want to see anyone go through this again.”

The same man was convicted of felony theft in Texas for stealing thousands from the healthcare system while impersonating a doctor.

“I’m speculating that he really messed with the wrong person, screwing with the wrong person’s emotions and finances.”

Few details are known about his death, but Brown believes his lifestyle caught up with him.

It was the third homicide in Surrey last week alone.
