It appears that a wrongful death suit is on Bruce Jenner’s heels. Kim Howe, the woman who was killed in the Jenner car crash, has two stepchildren who are looking into suing him for wrongful death. The kicker is that Howe and the stepchildren were estranged and had virtually had no relationship.
Howe was driving her Lexus on the Pacific Coast Highway on February 7th when Jenner slammed into her, sending her car careening into the lane of oncoming traffic where a Hummer demolished her car.
Howe has no direct relatives. Her husband died in 2003, and it appears her parents are deceased as well as other immediate blood relatives.
Howe does have two grown stepchildren who do not live in California. And neither of them have any significant connection to Howe. Nonetheless, both of them have lawyered up, because they’re the only remaining people who have a legal right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In California, stepchildren have legal standing to sue, even if they were estranged from the stepparent.
Sources say, the lawyer for one of the stepchildren has already asked his client to find as many pictures and other evidence showing some relationship between himself and Howe, presumably to help establish damages in the lawsuit.
