Kennedy Crash Aftermath

The mother of Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and Lauren Bessette left open the option Thursday to sue over the plane crash that killed her daughters and John F. Kennedy Jr. Ann M. Freeman of Old Greenwich, Conn., filed a petition in State Surrogate’s Court in Manhattan to distribute existing assets totaling less than $1 million and any money that might be produced from lawsuits. The court papers said there may be “personal injury and wrongful death claims against persons and parties as yet unknown” arising from the July 16, 1999, crash.

  • To date no will has been filed on behalf of any of the three who died in the fateful plane crash off Martha’s Vineyard, not for John F. Kennedy, Jr., whose estate is estimated to be worth $100 million, nor for either of the Bessette daughters, whose estates are estimated to be less than $500,000 each.
