Lucas Buys Hilbert Mansion!

The founders of Lucas Oil Products Inc. today announced they are purchasing the former mansion in Carmel of disgraced businessman Stephen Hilbert.

Forrest Lucas, an Indiana native whose company owns the naming rights to Lucas Oil Stadium in neighboring Indianapolis, said he did not know exactly what he and his wife, Charlotte, will do with the 36-room mansion.

By the way: they bought it from CNO Financial Group for $3 million, a steep discount to the original $20 million asking price. (Wonder why Tomisue and Steve didn't just buy it back?)
