A: Nothing has been forfeited other than possession of the truck, but it's unlikely she'll get it back - more likely the relatives who bullied her to get it will lie if necessary to sell it.

Without the will (or heirship information) it's impossible to tell who the truck belongs to. Talk to a probate lawyer in your area.
