It was discovered because her oldest son, 61 yr old Edward Franklin, has been trying to get a court order to force the estate to produce monthly financial documents to Franklin’s heirs but the estate is hesitant because they claim it may negatively impact the criminal investigation by police into the missing assets.

The estate is demanding the court shut down Edward’s attempt to get the records so that the police may continue their investigation.

There is also an ongoing dispute between Franklin’s estate and one of her ex-husbands regarding music royalties.
