Anne Heche’s son asks to regain control of his estate

Homer Laffoon, 20, asks to be given control of his mother’s property. Heche, who died last month after a car accident at 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 reads, “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 caught fire on August 5. She suffered a “severe anoxic brain injury,” depriving her brain of oxygen, among other serious injuries, her family and friends said in a statement to CNN at the time. .

She died a few days later after being taken off life support.

“My brother Atlas and I have lost our mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with deep, wordless sadness,” Lafoon said in a statement to CNN Aug. 14. “I hope my mother is free from pain and begins to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom.”
