Even though his family was at first keen on letting the world know that Mr. Matthew Mellon, the billionaire Bank of Mellon banking heir who passed away this weekend, spent his final hours in a Mexican rehabilitation center, it soon became known that such was untrue.

Already the comments from friends, one of whom mentioned that Mr. Mellon was returning “to the clinic for ‘maintenance’ and took his private jet there a few days ago, he had a heart attack after taking Ayahuasca, ” were a bit too revealing.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://t.co/mJ0FV7ZbDG">https://t.co/mJ0FV7ZbDG</a><br>Billionaire Banking Heir dead at 54….he also served for a time as the chairman of the finance committee of the Republican Party in New York.</p>&mdash; Isaac Green (@antischool_ftw) <a href="https://twitter.com/antischool_ftw/status/986679057445212161?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 18, 2018</a></blockquote>

Secondly, the rehabilitation center in question (Clear Sky Recovery in Cancun, Mexico), not wanting to let its good reputation go to waste, also issued a press release soon after the family had done so and stated that Mr. Mellon ‘never checked in’.

Apparently, Mr. Mellon, who was known in Wall Street circles for having battled substance abuse for years, was currently on an OxyContin addiction and spent some $100,000 a month on the drug.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Billionaire Matthew Mellon died a day before checking into rehab center: &quot;Mr. Mellon was scheduled to [attend] Clear Sky Recovery on [Monday].&quot; <a href="https://t.co/w52kaudCzK">https://t.co/w52kaudCzK</a></p>&mdash; Gossip Bucket (@GossipBucket) <a href="https://twitter.com/GossipBucket/status/986801932944551937?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 19, 2018</a></blockquote>

His family insists though that he was at this point some 88 days sober at the moment that he took the private jet to the Cancun center for 'maintenance'.

However, sources now say that Mellon's family have been unable to trace the alleged fortune he had made in crypto-currency and worry that the enormous sums have “disappeared”.

“Something weird has happened to all his crypto money and his family can't find it”.
