Bunny Mellon, Heiress Ensnared in Edwards Scandal, Dies at 103

Rachel “Bunny” Mellon, the heiress to one of America’s great business fortunes whose support of presidential candidate John Edwards had attracted her, at 100, the type of public scrutiny she had spent a lifetime avoiding, has died. She was 103.

She died today at her estate in Upperville, Virginia, her longtime lawyer, Alexander D. Forger, said.
