Handling Digital Assets after a Death

Helping Survivors Tie Up Loose Ends

Sudden or unexpected loss is an undoubtedly traumatic experience for those left behind. Things you had taken for granted in your life are suddenly uprooted as you search for answers to the only question that seems important: why?

As you wrestle with your grief, there are still the realities of planning the funeral or memorial service and administering the estate, all while trying to settle the affairs of your loved one. It may seem like an insurmountable hill to climb, particularly if no arrangements had been made in advance. It can be a bewildering time, and important details can be easily overlooked.

If you have been named the personal representative of a loved one’s estate, or the executor of their will, you have a tremendous responsibility toward each of the estate’s beneficiaries to be complete in your collection of assets and liabilities.

While hard copies of trusts, nuptial agreements and life insurance policies may be stored in safes or bank safe deposit boxes, proof of some assets may only exist in virtual space.

Imagine continuing to receive phone calls about delinquent or unresolved bills for months, or even years, following your loved one’s passing. By having each of their computers or other digital devices, like smartphones and tablets forensically examined, you can be certain of tying up all loose ends. Promptly closing the affairs of their life will let you focus on coming to terms with your loss.

Spindletop Investigations can help you discover and recover hidden or deleted bank statements, tax returns or insurance policies. We can find evidence of hidden assets or recurring debts which will need to be resolved.

Manage Social Media after Death

The realities of death in the 21st Century are different than they were even a decade ago. Social media have given each of us a digital life parallel to our everyday life. Many of us have several profiles spanning numerous social media, from Facebook, Google+ and Twitter to Pinterest and LinkedIn, as well many smaller and specialty sites, like Instagram and others.

When a loved one has died, you should have the ability to resolve their social media in the way you see fit. Many people will turn the deceased’s Facebook page into a memorial where friends can express their grief. Others will completely shut down all social media. That choice is best left to you, but first you will need access to those accounts.

When you need help recovering passwords to a deceased loved one’s social media accounts, Spindletop Investigations can help. With our digital forensic analysis tools, we can analyze computer hard drives, iPhones and iPads, Android or Windows-based smartphones or tablets for social media activity, and recover passwords to those sites.

Investigate Suspicious Circumstances

The sudden death of a loved one is difficult enough to deal with, but when that death is the product of violence or other outside forces, it can be crushing. When you believe there may be more below the surface of the tragedy, please call Spindletop Investigations.

That nagging feeling will never go away, and can hurt your ability to deal with your loss. We will help you find out the entire truth so you can make your own peace.
