Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of the lawyer who disappeared after admitting in a letter that he embezzled money from clients.
Police belief Jonathan Hoyt stole at least $500,000 from clients before he disappeared, leaving his abandoned Lexus in a parking lot near a Bridgeport, Conn., train station, the Hartford Courant reports.
"We don't believe he hurt himself," Clinton, Conn., police Sgt. Joseph Flynn told the Courant. "Why would all the money be missing, you know?"
