$19 million hobo - Possible heir to Huguette Clark’s fortune found dead
Cowboy found living rough stood to inherit percentage of New York recluse’s millions
The body of Timothy Henry Gray (60) was found in Wyoming. The long-lost relative of Huguette Clark stood to inherit $19 million of her $306.5 million fortune but was found dead, living on the streets before he could be told.
Gray’s body was found by children sledding under the Union Pacific Railroad overpass in Evanston, Wyoming, on Thursday. It is believed that Gray suffered from mental health issues and was essentially homeless.
The half great-nephew of Clark was tragically unaware that he stood to inherit 6.25 percent of the copper mining fortune. Clark, a recluse who lived in New York, died in May 2011 at the age of 104. It is believed Clark had not seen any relatives in 40 years.
Clark’s left no money in her will to her relatives. She left her fortune to her nurse, goddaughter, attorney, hospital, doctor, favorite museum, various employees, and an art foundation. However, 19 of her relatives came forward and are challenging her will in the New York courts.
Administrators had attempted to locate Gray about the legal battle but all they found were belongings in a storage locker. They were unable to find him.
Lieutenant Bull Jeffers of the Evanston Police Department said that there was no evidence of foul play in Gray’s death. He said the 60-year-old was wearing a light jacket in 10F weather.
It is not yet clear whether Gray was living under the overpass. The area is know as a popular spot for homeless people to set up camp.
Gray was the adopted great-grandson of US Senator William Andrews Clark, who made his fortune in copper in Montana. He also had business in banking, building, railroads and reserves special fame as the founder of Las Vegas. His daughter, Huguette, lived in New York hospitals for 20 years before her death leaving her palatial properties across the United States unused.
Although it’s believed that Gray was living on the streets his brother Jerry told NBC that he had access to money. In fact a cashiers check, dated 2003, made out to a substantial sum of money was found in his pocket.
Jerry said his brother had worked and lived in the Rocky Mountains making a living as a cowboy for most of his life.
He said “He was homeless essentially.
“If we had proper mental health services in this country, we could have notified and known to do something.”
