Albany-- The last three of the eight suspects in that million dollar embezzlement scheme of an elderly Albany woman have turned themselves in.

Danny Cook and his wife Helen Cook, and their son Cameron Cook all surrendered to the Dougherty County jail.

Danny Cook is the son of Anne Williamson, who Investigators say was the mastermind of the scheme to loot the estate of 82-year-old Ima Rude.

District Attorney Ken Hodges wants the Cooks held while their finances are investigated. "My agenda and primary focus is identifying all the places they have put these assets, and seizing them so we can hopefully return them to Miss Rude, the victim in this case."

The Cooks are being held without bond at the Dougherty County jail. Investigators believe they were in New Jersey last Wednesday when the Grand Jury indicted them.
