Richard Taylor, a man who apparently took care of paperwork for Walker’s lot of vehicles, is accused of taking over 30 of them from a warehouse. Separately, a suit was also filed against Roger Rodas, the man driving the Porsche both men died in, charging the Rodas estate of also taking some of Walker’s collection.

From several different sources, and according to court papers filed by Walker’s estate, Taylor and helpers reportedly jacked the cars within 24 hours of the fatal crash on Nov. 30, 2013. The vehicles include a 2008 BMW M3, 2006 Crown Victoria, 2004 GMC truck, three 1995 M3, and a 2011 Porsche GT3 RS. The suit claims Taylor is hiding the cars or may have already sold some of them.

In the second lawsuit, Walker’s estate believes the estate of Rodas is in possession of some 17 cars belonging to Walker, including a 1969 Ford Mustang and 2010 Audi R8. Walker’s estate is looking to either get the cars back or get equal cash value. In both lawsuits, a jury trial is being sought.
