The Ouachita County judge said Tuesday it's reasonable to believe that Matthew Seth Jacobs' death may not have been because of the car accident and bodily traumaThe ruling authorized State Police to exhume Jacobs' remains and the state medical examiner to perform an autopsy, which hadn't been done before, Arkansas Business reported . Jacobs had received a settlement after surviving the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spillHis estate was valued at $1.7 million. The ruling came weeks after former Camden real estate agent Donna Herring and her 22-year-old daughter, Jordan Alexandra Peterson, pleaded guilty to federal crimes related to Jacobs' fake willHerring pleaded guilty Jan26 to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and Peterson pleaded guilty Feb15 to making a false statement to the FBI. A lawsuit filed in 2016 on behalf of Jacobs' estate alleged that Jacobs was believed to be on his way to visit a girlfriend on Jan19, 2015Jacobs lost control of his car, slammed into a tree and died at the scene, according to a traffic report from State Police that was included in a probate filing. Herring admitted to creating a fake will after Jacobs' deathThe will left nearly all of Jacobs' assets to Peterson, with whom Jacobs had a romantic relationship, instead of to his only child. Herring faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 finePeterson faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fineA sentencing date hasn't been set in either case.
