If the money came from the trust fund, that would be my guess. Though he would have the house as a sellable asset. Also, when they talked about the trust's net worth it was in the millions, but they were looking for just cash, which was a small portion. So it appears there are some assets (which would include the house) that are worth no small amount of money. So in the end, no, he wouldn't really be broke.
But, as indicated in the last one or two episodes, Purdy had already "borrowed" significant amounts from JS's trust fund to cover loans taken out by Faith Ministry. The now-dead accountant said that although it looked like the trust fund was still worth quite a bit, it really wasn't because that money was used to cover Faith Ministry's loans. If they defaulted on the loans, the trust fund was essentially wiped out (and supposedly Faith Ministry is close to defaulting). That's when Purdy asked out of the millions supposedly in the trust fund, how much was actually available to be withdrawn as cash, which was only about 200k. Essentially, Purdy has stolen millions from JS and depleted his trust fund.
What bothers me is Purdy. This man obviously believes in JS's abilities, yet was still either desperate enough or crazy enough to steal all that money even though he supposedly believes that JS could have discovered this by simply touching him. On that note, why the heck didn't JS disover this earlier.
I thought the way they finished the episode (killing the accountant and framing him for the murder) was incredibly lame. If I was the DA and sherrif, I would take one look at that and go, "yeah, sure, and I suppose you have a bridge to sell me also".
