To put the end of an estate administration battle, an old woman’s body will probably have to be exhumed for DNA testing to resolve who is the rightful heir to her property. Currently, the case is being investigated. So far, the investigation has revealed two different death certificates with different information provided in each. The first death certificate claims that the women died in the Kingston hospital in October of 1988 while the other has the date of death in March of 1993 in a different hospital.
A woman alleging that she is the deceased’s grandchild and the rightful heir, is also alleging that that her uncle faked his mother’s death and forged documents to show she was dead so that he would be the beneficiary of all of her possessions. She was quoted explaining "He did it with other people, some of them are relatives and some are strangers. " Investigators are looking into the allegations before the body is exhumed.
