Bank forecloses on Kustoks’ home

A bank has sued to foreclose on the Orland Park home where Allan Kustok allegedly murdered his wife in September.

Harris Bank says it is owed more than $664,000 on a mortgage loan Kustok and his wife, Anita Kustok, took out in May 2006, public records show. The amount being sought equals the original mortgage amount.

The complaint was filed in Cook County Circuit Court on March 22.

The 4,000-square-foot home in the 10900 block of Royal Oaks Lane had a market value of more than $700,000 in 2010, according to the Cook County assessor.

Prosecutors allege that Allan Kustok held a revolver just inches from the cheek of his sleeping wife on Sept. 29 and pulled the trigger.

Kustok told police that he awoke to a gunshot and found his wife lying dead.

Charged with first-degree murder, he has been held on $2 million bail at the Kankakee County Jail.

The house has apparently been unoccupied since the shooting occurred, and Harris’ lawsuit notes the owners are not living in the home.

Tax records show more than $14,800 has been paid in property taxes on the home since December.

Before his arrest, Allan Kustok had worked for more than two years as a sales representative for RTI Biologics. His wife taught gifted students in Riverside.
