Ronald Trump, better know as Jeff Kirschbaum, was suspicious as his wife Iguana (Karie Kirschbaum) chatted with gambler Ace High (Buck Engen) and Hustling Hailey (Kristi Engen). The gambler was the victim when the Trumps hosted a who dunnit dinner theatre Saturday night at Who’s Place in Gary. When all the clues were tallied, it turned out that Hustling Hailey choked him with her pearls to keep from sharing her fortune with gambler, who had lost $50 million on an unlucky sports bet.
