Gary Coleman Cremated; Anna Gray Pays Respects

by at . Comments

Three weeks after Gary Coleman died, his wish to be cremated was granted, although the fate of his remains - and estate - is still very much up in the air.

Entertainment Tonight confirmed the actor's cremation, and that Coleman's former girlfriend Anna Gray paid her last respects to the star earlier this week.

Anna Gray, named in a 2005 will as the executor and beneficiary to Gary's estate, left Memorial Mortuary in Murray, Utah, after a private viewing of his body.

There will be no funeral service, per his request.

If valid, the 2005 will supersedes a 1999 will already entered for probate by the actor's former manager, Dion Mial, who implied there was foul play involved.

R.I.P. Gary Coleman (1968-2010).

Mial is likely insinuating that Gary's former wife Shannon Price had something to do with it, given the power grab she's made for his estate since he died.

But Anna Gray's lawyer Randy Kester, who was also Coleman's attorney during his divorce to Price, said the 2005 will may also override Price's claims.

If valid, it nullifies the handwritten codicil (amendment to a will) that gives all assets to Shannon Price, including a $315,000 home in Santaquin, Utah.

While Gray and Price have conflicting wills, both documents agreed that Gary wished to be cremated, so the attorneys agreed to go ahead with that.

What happens to his remains, and assets, is another story. More than likely, the battle for Coleman's estate between Gray and Price is far from over.
