Edward and Elaine Brown, Dental and Pest Business Owners
Ed and Elaine are the Bonnie and Clyde to tax-haters everywhere. Their months-long 2007 standoff in their 110-acre home in New Hampshire, where residents “Live Free or Die,” made national headlines. The incident occurred after the couple was sentenced to 5 years and 3 months in prison for failure to pay federal income tax on $2 million of their income. Fortunately, nobody was injured, even though numerous weapons, ammunition, booby traps and explosive devices were found in their home. Now, Ed and Elaine are serving 37-and 35-year sentences respectively.
