What happens to his possessions if no relatives are in the KOW?

Valuables will be taken by whoever goes to his room first. It may be the police. It may be the owner. If he had a girlfriend, it may be the girlfriend.

In my experience, I've found that the police had itemized all of the deceaseds possessions and passed the list to the embassy for relatives to decide what to do with.

In that particular case, the parents wanted a few keepsakes and the rest was turned over to me to dispose of as I saw fit.

All valuables were intact, nothing at all had gone missing, down to notes in wallet.

The information coming out is he was called Randell "Tex" Penrod and he didn't crash but pulled over feeling unwell and collapsed and was unable to be resuscitated. RIP

Very sad news I knew Tex and he was a fine man who loved his motorbike and I am very sorry to hear he has died. Rip Tex and condolences to the family.
Who ever it is after his possessions fuck off they all belong to his family you greedy little man.

I did not know him well, but we spoke a few times when dining at the same restaurant, and I liked him. Sorry to hear this.

He used to eat at Dolce Vita on 172. As of yesterday no one has been able to find out where he lived. Body is still in Morgue, something to do with US embassy. i was told he had a suspected heart attack while riding.

I just wonder how 'accurate' the police are with recording the items found at his death. Actually, I don't really wonder, I already know the answer. I do wonder, however, if it (the deceit and lying) will ever change.
