Members of the Sackler family, owners of Oxycontin-maker Purdue Pharma, are buying a sprawling home in Palm Beach County for $7.4million – months before the family business files for bankruptcy.
The purchase took place shortly before Purdue Pharma filed for Chapter 11 protection in a bid to resolve 2,600 opioid lawsuits pending against the company.
The property purchases in Palm Beach County, an epicenter of the pill mill industry that helped spawn the national opioid crisis, stunned an attorney who represents the county.
