Potential Heir to Huguette Clark Fortune Recently Found Dead

Images-7I have previously blogged about disputes surrounding Huguette Clark's estate, and there has been a recent development regarding her heirs.  A homeless man who was a potential heir to Huguette Clark's $300 million fortune has been found dead in Wyoming.  Timothy Henry Gray, Clark's 60-year-old half great-nephew was found dead under a Union Pacific Railroad overpass.  Temperatures in Evanston, where Timothy was found dead, had hit a low of 0 in recent days, so he reportedly died of hypothermia.  

Gray's siblings said that their homeless brother disappeared in 1990 after their mother died.  If Gray does not have a will, his siblings could receive his $19 million share in addition to their own.
