Eerie photos reveal the lonely life of a reclusive heiress and her empty mansions

When Huguette Clark passed away in 2011 at the age of 104, she left behind a fortune worth $300 million. But just-released photos reveal that many of the trappings of the heiress's fortune were abandoned long before her death.

The daughter of U.S. Sen. William A. Clark, the mining and railroad tycoon who founded Las Vegas, is the subject of a new biography, "Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune."

The Huffington Post article and photos are available here.
