Aretha Franklin’s son wants a handwriting expert to examine the three handwritten wills recently found, to determine if his mother wrote them.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kecalf Franklin filed a petition in his late mother’s estate seeking for court approval to bring an expert to court. Aretha’s heirs have not been able to agree if the wills are real or not.
Kecalf hired a handwriting expert with Speckin Forensic Laboratories. He wants the judge to allow the man to use technology to go over the handwriting.
He says the court previously prohibited the expert from using his equipment, and now needs the judge to sign off.
