Can I solely make a claim for my deceased parents' "unclaimed property" if I have a sister?

Question Details: I recently discovered that the State is holding unclaimed property from my deceased parents. It happens to be a rather significant amount of money. My sister is the person in charge of a trust that my mother set up in a Living Will. In order for me to claim the money, I need both death certificates and my mother's probate documents. Obviously, my sister's name will be listed as the head of the Trust. My sister sued me with my share of the inheritance in order to take the house I lived in. After selling my house she took all of her inheritance money, retired from her job, and is long gone. In the meantime, I have been living in and out of shelters, cheap hotels, and my car. She has no idea that this money is available. It has been held by the State now for about 15 years. Is there any possible way for me to claim this without her knowing?
