From the ABA Journal (Law News Now): Reclusive fan wills estate worth up to $1 million to two ‘80s-era actors he never met
A reclusive man who lived in a central Illinois farmhouse without running water and drove a Ford truck from the 1960s nonetheless had an estate worth up to $1 million when he died last year.
And 71-year-old Ray Fulk, who never married and had no children or close family members, did not die intestate. He willed the bulk of his estate to two actors he never met who were TV and movie stars in the 1980s and 1990s, the State Journal-Register reports. The Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago got $5,000.
In his will, which was drawn up by Behle, Ray calls Brophy and Barton his friends. The lawyer says he found some letters written by his clients to the two actors. “They sent back responses that basically said thanks for writing and please watch me in whatever their next movie or show was.”
Read the comments, some are profane but most are very thoughtful.
