Huguette Clark Investigation Comes to a Close

Huguette-Clark-007

After managing the $300 million fortune of Huguette Clark, attorney Wallace Bock and accountant Irving H. Kamsler fell under suspicion.  Her second will, written weeks after her first, left each advisor $500,000 while leaving out her distant relatives.

The district attorney has now closed the investigation into how her estate was handled.  A neurologist testified in the investigation that the copper heiress seemed alert when he visited with her six months after signing the second will.  Bock and Kamsler will not be receiving any money, however, after a settlement combined elements of the two wills.
