All occupants of the Aeroplane unfortunately lost their lives. On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his Next of kin were ruitless. I therefore made further investigation and iscoveredhatlateDouglas J. Stone , did notdeclare any Next of kin in all his official documents.This sum US$32Million is still floating in the bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.
