More than $30 million may be missing from Kevin Trudeau’s empire. But a firm tasked by a federal judge with tracking down the TV pitchman’s fortune put its hands on more than $8 million.

He wouldn’t talk, so it’s back to jail for TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau for refusing to reveal where he’s hidden millions in ill-gotten gains.
