"He never caused problems for anyone" How a homeless man inherited millions of dollars, but never knew about it and died under the bridge and art fund. In the struggle for her fortune, relatives suddenly learned that one of the heirs wandered the streets for months and died in poverty under the bridge. The story of the Clark family shrouded in secrets is in the material of Lenta.ru.
On December 29, 2012, a 13-year-old boy and his 10-year-old sister were walking under the Pacific Railroad in the small town of Evanston, Illinois, when they came across a man wearing a light jacket, frozen to death. Arriving on a call, the police identified the deceased - he turned out to be 60-year-old Timothy Henry Gray. In the wallet of a man who looked like a tramp, they found a check for 54 thousand dollars, as well as a piece of paper with someone's phone number.
The police managed to find out that nine months before his death, Gray left the rented apartment and disappeared without a trace. He did not suspect that all this time he was being chased by private detectives, who were hired by the relatives of the late rich woman who were hunting for her inheritance.
Homeless Grey, without realizing it, was a distant relative of the artistic millionaire Yugette Clark, who died in May 2011 at the age of 104.
Nor did he know that he could inherit 6.25 percent of her fabulous $306.5 million fortune. It is not clear if the deceased lived under the overpass, but it is known that other homeless people set up makeshift camps there throughout the year.
Timothy Gray was adopted at age five by the grandson of William Andrews Clark, Montana's "copper king", who made his fortune in a metal that many neglected in the pursuit of gold. By the age of 34, the copper magnate had become a millionaire and was actively involved in politics.
William Andrews Clark (right)
After several attempts, Clark managed to get into the US Senate, and then moved to New York, where he settled in a luxurious extravagant mansion and surrounded himself with the best masterpieces of painting. After his death, he left eight children $ 150 million - fabulous wealth at the time.
In her youth, the youngest daughter of a wealthy senator, Eugetta Clark, led an active social life, fluttering from admirer to admirer. Once, in 1928, she nevertheless married, but the marriage lasted only a year.
Clarke loved everything Japanese: she was fond of the culture of the country and collected everything connected with it. Because of this, she even got interrogated by the FBI - she was suspected of having links with the enemy during and after World War II. It was rumored that after the conversation, the millionaire had a nervous breakdown.
According to Meryl Gordon's 2014 biography The Phantom of Fifth Avenue: The Mysterious Life and Scandalous Death of Heiress Juguette Clark, the senator's daughter was a quick-witted, intelligent, and bright personality.
Her far from aristocratic hobbies for television programs and even video games were often mentioned in the book. The biography quotes one of Clarke's employees: "She was destined to become an ethereal creature ... but she had more knowledge of the real world than people might think at first glance."
Clark loved beautiful mansions and bought property all over the country. In 1951, she purchased a 1,500-square-foot mansion in New Canaan, Connecticut. The estate had 22 rooms, 9 bathrooms, 11 fireplaces, a wine cellar and an elevator.
In downtown New York, Clarke owned three apartments occupying one and a half floors of a building. The most expensive property of the aristocrat was the Bellosguardo mansion overlooking the ocean in Santa Barbara, California.
One of the millionaire's favorite hobbies was collecting dolls, dollhouses and miniature furniture. She regularly participated in auctions, where she bought antiques, after which she instructed assistants to arrange elegant gizmos on her estates. She never bothered to look at some of the exhibits she acquired.
The aristocrat was also interested in music and art objects, in particular paintings. In the late 1980s, shortly after Clarke was admitted to the hospital, a painting by French painter Edgar Degas was stolen from one of her New York apartments.
In addition, among the assets of the millionaire were a rare violin from 1709, made by Antonio Stradivari, and an 1882 painting by the Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir
In the empty mansions of Clarke, there were not only the most valuable exhibits, but also expensive cars, including a Chrysler Royal convertible Eight of 1933 and a 1933 Cadillac V-16 limousine with seating for seven.
In addition to real estate, the senator's daughter had shares, trusts and cash totaling 79. 3 million dollars. The state of the aristocrat, according to general estimates, reached 306.5 million dollars.
The best-selling book Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Juguette Clark, published in 2013, states that in 1991 the aristocrat was hospitalized with operable skin cancer. Once in the hospital, the woman refused to return home and spent 20 years transferring from one medical institution to another. In the hospital, she met her death.
In the last 40 years of his life, none of the relatives visited Eugetta Clark, while some still tried to keep in touch with her: they sent postcards for the holidays and sometimes made phone calls. But it seems that all efforts were in vain.
In 2005, a senator's daughter made two separate wills. Then she was 98 years old. In the first, Clarke bequeathed five million dollars to a personal Filipino caregiver, Hadassah Peri, and most of the property to her closest living relatives, her cousins. However, in the second version, the millionaire crossed out all family members, leaving all the wealth to a nurse, goddaughter, lawyer, accountant, hospital, doctor, museum and art fund, which she wanted to place on her estate by the ocean.
In the second document, Peri's share increased to $30 million. At the announcement of the will, the Filipina stated: “I was her personal nurse and close friend. I knew her as a kind and generous person whom I sincerely loved. We shared many moments of joy."

When 19 of Clark's relatives learned that they had not received a penny from the late millionaire, they tried to challenge the will in New York court. In the process, they found out that there is also the 20th heir - the same Timothy Gray, whose body was found by the children under the bridge. If he had contacted other relatives of the deceased and won the court, his financial affairs, which were clearly not in order, could be corrected. But the man didn't know about it.
Gray's history is shrouded in mystery. According to his older brother, who, however, did not see him for more than 20 years, Timothy was a shepherd, worked on various ranches and wandered around the states at the foot of the Rocky Mountains for most of his life. It is all the more surprising that a check for tens of thousands of dollars was found in his wallet.
Photographer from New York Elijah Solomon became interested in Timothy Gray's riddle. To find out how the potential heir to a multi-million dollar fortune ended up on the street, he went to the city of Evanston. The man found out that the phone number found in the pocket of the deceased belonged to his brother. The last time the relatives saw each other was at their mother's funeral a couple of decades ago.
Solomon managed to find out that Gray had no friends, and he rarely talked with his neighbors. They knew practically nothing about the life of the mysterious Gray, including the fact that he was a distant relative of the daughter of a copper magnate.
The owner of the house, George Reeker, who rented Grey's apartment, said that the man left in 2002. “He only talked to me and my son,” Riker said in a conversation with Solomon. “Never seen him talk to anyone else. He was a real loner. But sometimes we exchanged a couple of phrases, discussing the technique.
Riker allowed Solomon to see the apartment where Gray lived. From the things preserved there, the photographer learned that Gray was obsessed with building and designing experimental aircraft. After examining the addresses on sealed letters addressed to Gray, Solomon found out that the heir had rented an office in the city for the past ten years.

Office owner Rick Sathers gave a similar portrait of Gray: an eccentric loner with no friends. “He was a pedant,” Sauters said. - Never missed a payment. I think he used the place mostly for mail, but he did work there for a while. He was engaged in something related to computers and voice recognition. I remember when he found out that his idea had already been implemented before him, he was upset because he wanted to come up with something innovative.
The landlord claimed that Gray was paranoid and often muttered to himself when talking to people. “He scared me a little, because he liked to come to the office at strange times, but he never caused problems for anyone ... Previously, alcoholics anonymous meetings were held here in the basement,” Sathers said. I think that's why he wanted to rent this office. I also know that he made donations to children in Africa, sort of in Sudan.”
How Gray made a living remains a mystery to this day. No bank accounts were found in his name, and where the check for $54,000 came from has also not been established.
In the last months of his life, Gray only interacted with the homeless. One of them, a Vietnam War veteran who did not give his name, said that the descendant of a wealthy senator was very bad. “I never saw him get up from his bed. I wasn't sure he could get up at all,” recalled a man who called the place under the bridge his home. - Once I tried to bring him some things, but he seemed to want and at the same time did not want to accept them. On Thanksgiving, I tried to get him to go get a hot ration in the city, but he didn’t budge.”
I once asked him if he was going to spend the whole winter under the bridge, and he told me, "That would be unreasonable." a court case. Relatives, many of whom had never seen the aristocrat during their lifetime, were able to inherit $34.5 million each. Nurse Hadassah Peri, who cared for the millionaire, who, according to the documents, was supposed to have $ 30 million, was ultimately deprived of her share in the inheritance.
12 funniest events of the year
On New Year's Eve factnews.ru tabloid recalled the funniest events that took place in 2007. Among them, the arrest for harassment of Santa Claus, the election of the ugliest dog in the world, the subpoena of a donkey in court as a witness. The publication lists the 12 most amazing, in his opinion, curiosities.
An American woman molested Santa Claus and was arrested
In the US city of Denbury (Connecticut), a woman was accused of sexually harassing Santa Claus. As the offended Santa, who worked at the local shopping center, complained to the police, the woman, sitting on his lap, began to feel him, and obviously for sexual purposes.
As a result, the police detained a 33-year-old local resident, Sandrama Lamy. She was charged with sexual harassment and disorderly conduct.
A sexually harassed woman turned out to be disabled: she moved on crutches. Lamy herself refused to admit her guilt and stated that all this was a vile lie. The police did not name the offended Santa, it is only known that he is 65 years old. According to law enforcement officers, the defiant behavior of the woman shocked and offended him, he is shocked by this incident.
The singer helped the Croatian football players win with a song about the genitals
The British singer, who sang the Croatian anthem before the Croatia-England match in November, mixed up the penis and sang “mountain”. And thus helped the victory of the Croats.
Fans say singer Tony Henry's funny slip of the tongue helped the Croatian national team to relax ahead of the game at Wembley Stadium, where Croatia beat England 3-2.
The national anthem was written in Old Croatian. The line that Henry stumbled on was supposed to be “mila kuda si platinum,” which means “you know, dear, how much we love your mountains.” However, the singer sang “mila kura si planina” and it turned out “dear dick, you are a mountain” or “my dear, my dick is a mountain.”
Hearing these words, the Croatian players chuckled, their spirits rose, and, in part, because of this, they defeated the British.
In Khakassia, an electrician was mistaken for a "rolling"
In Khakassia, 52-year-old electrical engineer Neil Smith was mistaken for a legendary musician and was invited to judge a local beauty contest for this reason. A casual conversation in a Khakass hotel and a lousy interpreter gave Smith a taste of fame.
Working this year on a contract at a steel plant in Abakan, Smith decided one evening to reminisce about the good old days.
With the help of a hotel employee who acted as an interpreter, an electrician talked to a wealthy Russian hotel owner about how he and his friends lived in the 70s, driving around in an old van and performing at different clubs.
Difficulty in interpreting gave the hotelier the impression that he was talking to a famous rock musician who once stood shoulder to shoulder with the Rolling Stones.
Smith received an invitation to judge a "little competition" and agreed, thinking it was some kind of event at a local bar.
However, when the appointed day arrived, a chauffeured limousine arrived for him and took him to the huge concert hall in Abakan, where he was greeted by enthusiastic crowds of people and television cameras.
Smith discovered that he had to judge the beauty contest "Star of Khakassia" and that he was mistaken for a big celebrity.
