Q: what to do when someone steals your half of life insurance policy

Cousin had my legal guardian (my aunt/adoptive mom) change her life insurance beneficiary to herself about three months before she passed from cancer then stole all of my insurance money and I lost everything because my mom had just died basically. My cousin lies and swears she didn't get ANY money from the policy but thats not possible being that the policy was active and had been paid on for years equaling $30,000. I need help to get my share of my moms life insurance policy so I can get on my feet.i have the original copies of her spouse (not married) who was the original beneficiary who was put into an assisted living program after suffering Dementia and was convinced to sign the papers over to my cousin who as I said before took it all leaving my younger sister and I nothing. I hope you can help, much needed. Thank you.
