"Jacobs, 77, was a longtime takeover artist, buying companies and selling them, earning him the nickname Irv the Liquidator. His controversial practices made him the subject of national media attention, including a 1985 Forbes profile and a 1996 New York Times profile."

"Irwin L Jacobs (July 15, 1941 – April 10, 2019) was an entrepreneur and the CEO of several large corporations, formerly including the now-bankrupt Genmar Holdings, which at one time was billed as the world's largest boat-building company. He earned the nickname "Irv the Liquidator" for his aggressive business practices in the 1970s and early 1980s. In 1973, Jacobs founded COMB ("Close-out Merchandise Buyers"), a catalog-based mail-order retailer. In 1986, COMB and several cable television operators created the Cable Value Network (CVN), a pioneering television shopping channel which was later purchased by Joseph Segel's QVC. Jacobs, based in Minneapolis, became wealthy by taking big stakes in Fortune 500 conglomerates, usually with the goal of unlocking value by breaking them up."

Interesting....and hard to do....

Reminds of Gary Webb.

"According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office, Alexandra Jacobs died of multiple gunshot wounds; the manner of her death was described as a homicide. Irwin Jacobs’ manner of death was suicide; he also died of multiple gunshot wounds."

 Quoting: dmhennen


So he shot himself multiple times?



Prominent Twin Cities businessman Irwin Jacobs shot and killed his wife, Alexandra, before turning the gun on himself, the Hennepin County medical examiner confirmed Friday.

According to the medical examiner’s office, Alexandra Jacobs died of multiple gunshot wounds; the manner of her death was described as a homicide. Irwin Jacobs’ manner of death was suicide; he also died of multiple gunshot wounds.




While each had multiple gunshot wounds, Irwin's death was a suicide and Alexandra's death was found to be a homicide, the medical examiner said in an April 12 news release.
