Homer Laffoon, 20, is asking that he be awarded control of his mother’s assets. Heche, who died last month after a car crash at age 53, did not have a will, according to a copy of the petition obtained by CNN.
The petition names Laffoon and Heche’s 13-year-old son, Atlas Tupper as heirs.
“The Estate consists of two (2) intestate heirs—Homer Heche Laffoon and Atlas Heche Tupper,” the petition statess “Homer Heche Laffoon is an adult and the proposed Administrator. Atlas Heche Tupper is a minor.”
Heche’s car crashed into a Los Angeles home and erupted into flames on August 5. She experienced a “severe anoxic brain injury,” depriving her brain of oxygen, among other critical injuries, her family and friends said in a statement to CNN at the time.
She died days later after being taken off life support.
