104-year old Huguette Clark died in May of 2011, leaving behind a $400 million estate. Her last known will prior to her death left large sums to few acquaintances, including $34 million to her nurse. However, in November of that year, a second will by Clark had been discovered, having been signed just six weeks prior to the first. The earlier will stipulated that her mass fortune be left to 21 distant relatives of hers, a contrast from what was stated in the second. Settlement over the conflicting wills is expected to take several years.
