Did Wall Street millionaire John Bender shoot himself or was he murdered in his 50,000-square-foot home in Costa Rica? His wife Ann Bender was tried twice and convicted once of killing him, but that case was later overturned on an appeal. Then she faced a third trial for the same crime and "48 Hours" was there for the dramatic twist in a case that has generated international intrigue.
In this aerial shot, the 50,000 square foot home John and Ann Bender built can be seen sitting on top of a hill deep in the Costa Rican rain forest. The home doesn't have any walls, only screens to keep insects from coming in.
It wasn't just the couple's' home. It was also the headquarters of the natural reserve they established and named Boracayan.
Some of the stained glass lamps in the Bender's home in Costa Rica. Ann Bender told "48 Hours" she had approximately 400 of these lamps and after John's death, the Costa Rican government confiscated them.
