You may or may not be able to glean ownership info from the state records, but my colleagues provided the links so take a look and see what you can find.
That said, I think you should discuss the situation with a lawyer in more detail and in private so a best course of action can be reached. There is not enough info provided here to offer any insights and you should not reveal too much online anyway.
I have seen many such situations in my practice and they are always very fact intensive. Most of us here, including myself, offer a free phone consult.
