Saturday, January 3rd, 1970
SANTA MONICA, Jan. 3 – The $45,400 estate of actress Sharon Tate, who left no will, will be divided among her husband, parents, and sisters, according to court records.
A document filed Friday in superior court here by attorneys for Miss Tate’s father, retired Army Col. Paul J. Tate, 47, indicated that a search was made to determine if the young actress left a will. None was found.
Tate was granted permission by Superior Court Judge Mario L. Clinco to act as administrator for his daughter’s estate. Tate’s petition listed as her immediate heirs her husband, film director Roman Polanski, her father, her mother, Doris, 45; and two sisters, Deborah Ann, 17, and Patricia Gaye, 12, who both live with their mother in Palos Verdes Estates, Calif.
The documents indicated Miss Tate’s estate was $45,400, including cars worth $5,700.
