I think all of us is pretty aware of F. Warrington Gillette's (maybe, maybe not) film Bloody Social was about his mother allegedly killing his father, and all for money. I got bored and looked them up and it turns out that the Gillet (how his last name is actually spelled) family was a pretty well known family in Palm Beach, Florida.
His mother was a very well known socialite, very active in the arts and headed many benefits. His father, Francis Warrington Gillet, Jr., also mingled with politicians, raced horses (Explains Warrington, III's love of horses!), and kept close ties with very wealthy people.
I found nothing on his death other than an article about Warrington, III hiring investigators and exhuming his father's body for investigation and his obituary (which said he died from complications of heart disease). However, his mother Eles, did divorce Warrington and re-marry. "Warry" was her second husband, who she met mid-divorce from her previous husband. She was also a heiress to the Ingalls Steel fortune ("Warry" was heir to a cereal fortune), and who knows how much money she took from Gillet. In 1985 she offered her home to Prince Charles and Princess Diana while they visited Palm Beach.
This couple was very well followed, as I found articles from their stay in New York (5th Avenue apartment, of course), announcing their trip to Paris, their social gatherings and even someone robbing a statue from their lawn.
On Feb. 14, F. Warrington Gillet III-known as “Little Warry” to his friends-plans to file a motion in Baltimore County Circuit Court in Towson, Md., to get his father’s body exhumed from a Maryland churchyard and an autopsy performed. For the past several months, the 43-year-old former stockbroker and Manhattan resident has been telling friends that his father-F. Warrington Gillet Jr., or “Big Warry”-died under mysterious circumstances last May at his Palm Beach estate, and that Big Warry’s wife, Elesabeth Ingalls Gillet, might know more about it than she’s letting on.
In addition to trying to get his father’s body exhumed, Mr. Gillet has hired a private investigator. Mr. Gillet’s sleuthing over his father’s death coincides with his attempt to break back into Manhattan society. His barbs at his stepmother have recently landed him some short mentions in the Daily News and New York Post gossip pages, with one item coming from a November e-mail Mr. Gillet sent to his friends, in which he wrote: “Watch how this unfolds. She is not going to get away with this. This will be the biggest bomb to ever hit Palm Beach. You watch.” (Read the rest: Observer.com)
