It is no secret that Fred and Jennifer Heebe moved to 5531 St Charles Avenue in early 2009. The question is do they really own the property and what role does the mansion’s former owner play with respect to the property today? To wit:
At the end of this article by the T-P’s Kate Moran Jennifer Sneed Heebe confirms her and her hubby Fred are in the process of buying the house.
Here is where it begins to get murky. According to the Orleans Parish Tax Assessor the property is owned by 5531 St Charles Avenue, LLC which lists the property’s previous owner, Susan D Krohn on the mailing address. The Secretary of State shows 5531 St Charles Ave LLC as having a sole member, BLU, LLC. I could not find anything on BLU at the Louisiana Secretary of State Website.

“Because of hurricane Katrina, the Krohns left their home on St. Charles Avenue for Houston, where they bought another residence…
Now I suspect the FBI was not as impressed with the massive closet on the second floor as the source quoted in the last link but it is clear Ms Krohn has some serious dough as evidenced by her new digs in the Houston area.
Any additional insights including about the property itself in the comments is mucho appreciated as always.
