The strange case of reclusive New York copper heiress Huguette Clark grew even stranger over New Year's with the news that her half-great-nephew, who stood to inherit $19 million from her $400 million estate, was found dead in the snow in Wyoming.

The body of Timothy Henry Gray, 60, was discovered Dec. 27 underneath the overpass of Union Pacific Railroad in the small mining town of Evanston by kids who were sledding nearby, reports ABC News.
