Three handwritten wills found at Aretha Franklin’s home
Three handwritten wills have been found at the home of Aretha Franklin, months after the “Queen of Soul’s” death.
Franklin died from pancreatic cancer in August and family members said at the time that she had left no will.
The three documents were found earlier this month, including two written in 2010 recovered from a locked cabinet after a key was located.
The third dated March 2014, was hidden under living room cushions, and was written inside a spiral notebook.
The latter appears to leave her assets to her family.
David Bennett, who has been Franklin’s lawyer for more than 40 years, filed the wills on Monday.
It is not known if they are legal under Michigan law.
