Heather Morgan and her husband Ilya “Dutch” Lichtenstein were a pair of serial entrepreneurs who conspired to launder $4.5 billion in stolen Bitcoin. Besides this illegal activity, Heather Morgan owned a Bengal named Clarissa.
Unfortunately, owning a Bengal cat in New York City, where the couple lived, is illegal. When police arrived, Heather tried to distract agents with the cat so she could lock smartphones. Now that Heather and her husband are in custody, people are wondering what will become of her cat. Hopefully someone will find Clarissa a good home with law-abiding citizens for a change.
