$15,000 in Rolex watches

Three days after the murders, and months before any suspicion had come on the boys, they spent $15,000 on three Rolex watches.

Porsche

Lyle gets a Porsche

Looking to keep up the lavish life style he was accustomed to, Lyle picked himself up a gunmetal gray Porsche 911 Carrera for $64,000.

jeep

Erik gets a Jeep

Although not the lavish spender his brother was, Erik upgraded his vehicle to a brand new Jeep Wrangler.

Princeton

Lyle goes into business

Looking to prove that he’s just as business savy as daddy, Lyle buys a restaurant named Chuck’s in Princeton, New Jersey for $550,000. He promptly runs it into the ground.

Tennis

Erik wants to be a champ

Their father always emphasized the importance of excelling, if not winning, in everything. Erik had already been winning at tennis for years as an amateur, but with the help of his $60,000 a year personal trainer, he hoped to be winning as a pro.

cash

Lyle living large

Lyle loved shopping, and did it often. On one occasion he picked up $24,000 in stereo equipment. Another time it was $40,000 in clothes. By the end of it all, he had racked up $90,000 on his father’s American Express card.

Bodyguards

Safety first

Lyle and Erik also hired their very own bodyguards…to keep them safe from the mob…because the mob had killed their parents…and were obviously after them.

party

Taking some time off

The boys also went on several expensive vacations and managed to rack up thousands of dollars in bills partying with friends, ordering room service, and popping bottles.
