A couple, together for a decade, has always rode in a vehicle owned/driven by #2. #1 doesn't have a drivers license but decides that he wants an upgrade to a better vehicle. The couple purchase the vehicle, with #1 providing the $ [owing another $150] and #2 signing the bill of sale with the understanding that #2 will be the driver. # 2 sells her vehicle since she can't afford the cost of 2 vehicles. #1 decides to drive, one day, and wreaks the car w/o having finished paying it off [no title], w/o insurance or a license. #2 now has no means of transportation. #2 moves out due to DV. The vehicle sits for a year until #1 can afford to partially repair the damage. During that time #1 and #2 re establish a tentative relationship. Then #1 dies w/o will or other assets. The family of #1 swoops in and takes everything of value [regardless that #2 has provided most of the items] and the vehicle. The vehicle sits w/o current tags, w/o a title and in front of family members rented dwelling.

Who owns the vehicle?
