Where is the investigation into SBFraud’s parents. Wasn’t it reported that they had real estate in their names in the Bahamas purchased by FTX customer funds?

Accusations Against SBF’s Parents
After the former CEO of the fallen crypto exchange FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), faced accusations of fraud, his parents Joseph Bankman and Barbara Fried were also implicated in the case. John J Ray III, the current CEO of the firm, stated that the two Stanford professors “certainly received payments” from FTX.
Deaton’s inquiry was prompted by a sarcastic tweet from researcher James Murphy, known as MetaLawMan on Twitter. In the tweet, Murphy sarcastically attacked SBF and his father, suggesting that the idea of a new tax filing system proposed by US Senator Elizabeth Warren would be Joseph Bankman’s “brainchild.”
Deaton saw an opportunity to bring attention to the investigation into Joseph Bankman and Barbara Fried by questioning, “Wasn’t it reported that they had real estate in their names in the Bahamas purchased by FTX customer funds?”
The Controversial Allegations and SBF Arrest
The allegations surrounding SBF and his parents come after a series of dramatic events, including SBF’s arrest, a staggering $250 million bail, and house arrest. In the midst of these controversies, it was reported that SBF’s parents owned a $16.4 million vacation home in the Bahamas. However, no further investigation into their involvement seems to have taken place.
The XRP attorney, John E Deaton, has brought attention to the alleged involvement of SBF’s parents in the FTX case. With unanswered questions and a lack of clarity surrounding the investigation, it remains to be seen if further developments will arise in this ongoing saga.
