Lawyers for some parties in a contested inheritance saga have accused a likely beneficiary of murder within the family as the battle to exclude him from the final settlement, rages
The surviving children of late Connecticut real estate developer, John Chakalos, have accused their nephew of duplicity in the death of their dad and sister.
Now lawyers the company that insured his mother’s boat have said Nathan Carman drilled holes in his mother’s boat to ensure she drowned at sea.
Nathan Carman’s aunts accuse him of murdering his millionaire grandfather, 87, and sinking the boat while out sailing with his mother to get his hands on $7M inheritance; They want his share of the estate
He has already been questioned about the day his boat sank with his mother, Linda Carman, on it. She’s presumed dead. He said he doesn’t know if anyone has seen his mother since their fishing trip in 2016.
Chakalos , fatally shot inside his Connecticut home in 2013, in his will stipulated that his four daughters should split his estate, which is now said to be worth $29million.
Nathan is the only child of one of those daughters, Linda Carmen. With his mother gone, Nathan as her sole heir, could inherit her portion of the estate.

John Chakalos’ three surviving daughters have filed a court order seeking to prevent the 23-year-old from getting any of his $29 million fortune after his mother’s disappearance in September.
Meanwhile, U.S. Magistrate Judge Patricia Sullivan ordered Nathan Carman to turn over information about a Sig Sauer .308-caliber semi-automatic rifle he owned.
According to previous reports, the lawsuit filed against Nathan states that prior to Chakalos’ death, Nathan purchased a semi-automatic rifle that matched the caliber of the weapon used to kill Chakalos. Nathan Carman has denied allegations that he killed his own grandfather.

The judge said Carman must also turn over phone records from Sept. 1 through Sept. 25, 2016, the day he was rescued
That weapon is now missing, according to documents filed in a different lawsuit in New Hampshire.
But Sullivan rejected a request by the boat’s insurer to get information about other guns Carman may have owned, saying it was ‘sheer speculation’ for them to ask for records about every firearm Carman might have ever owned or possessed.
Carman and his mother, Linda, embarked on a fishing trip out of Rhode Island on Sept. 17, 2016. He was rescued a week later after being found floating on a life raft in the Atlantic Ocean nearly 100 miles offshore.
The surviving children of John Chakalos have accused their deceased sister’s son, Nathan of being responsible for the unsolved murder of his grandfather in 2013, to collect the inheritance money. Nathan Carman has denied allegations that he killed Chakalos, and said he doesn’t know the whereabouts of his mother.

Carman has acknowledged patching some holes on the 31-foot-long boat with marine putty before going fishing with his mother but insisted the boat was seaworthy.
In a filing on Thursday, the insurer’s lawyers alleged that Carman must have enlarged the holes in his boat’s hull.
‘No wonder the boat sank and Carman’s mother died,’ the filing said.
Carman’s lawyer said he would not address ‘unsupported allegations’ or engage in ‘litigation in the press’ when asked about the assertions about the holes after Friday’s hearing.
