Anne Heche dies without a will, son files to control estate

Actor Anne Heche died without a will, and her 20-year-old son filed court papers to control his estate

Deceased actress Anne Heche in Los Angeles left no will, and her 20-year-old son petitioned the court to manage his fortune.

Heche's son with her ex-husband Coleman Laffoon, Homer Laffoon, filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday asking her to be given the right to manage his mother's estate.

Homer LaFoon and Atlas Tupper, Heche's son with ex-husband James Tupper, age 13, are listed in the petition as his sole heirs.

According to the document, Heche's assets have been declared worthless. This often happens in the case of a first-time filing before one has the legal power to determine the value of the decedent's estate.

Homer LaFoon further submitted a petition requesting that his brother's interests be represented in court.

A Heche spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment via email.

On August 5, a vehicle Heche was operating in, jumped off a curb, collided with a Los Angeles residence and caught fire.

After being declared brain dead on August 11, he was kept alive on life support for three more days so that his organs could be donated.
