Actress Anne Heche, who was declared brain dead on August 11, died as the result of a car crash that had occurred a week prior. She died without a will.
Her oldest son, Homer Heche Laffoon, has filed papers to control her estate in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday. Laffoon, 20, also lists his younger brother and his mother’s former partner, James Tupper, as heirs. In addition, he filed a petition asking that someone be appointed to represent his brother’s interest in court.
The document lists the value of the estate as unknown, which is not uncommon in initial filings.
