Russell Armstrong might have had a life insurance policy at the time of his suicide, and the beneficiary wasn't his estranged wife, Taylor, but his son from his first marriage, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Aiden Armstrong, Russell's son, from his first marriage to Barbara Fredrickson, is believed to be the sole beneficiary of the policy.
