A dead man has left his $1 million estate to two soap stars that he had never met.
Ray Fulk died last summer at the age of 71 in his farmhouse near Broadwell, Illinois. He died alone with no family and few friends.
So he left his 160-acre estate to two actors that he felt close to - Kevin Brophy and Peter Barton.
Brophy's claim to fame was the 1977 TV show 'Lucan' in which he played the main character who had been raised by wolves.
A poster from the show was found in Fulk's farmhouse, which had no running water and was filthy, according to Fulk's attorney, Donald Behle.
Like Brophy, Barton acted in both moves and TV shows and he was most known for his role in the daytime soap, 'The Young and the Restless' where he played Dr. Scott Grainger.
The two actors know each other because they worked together on the 1981 film, 'Hell Night.'
Behle wrote Fulk's will more than a decade ago and he says he didn't know that Fulk had never met the actors to whom he was leaving his wealth.
Fulk's property is currently appraised at $1.1 million.
