Do you mean the executor?
Yes under certain conditions. (s)he is charged by law to wade through all the assets and debts at the time of the person's death. It is his job to
settle all the accounts. He is required to keep detailed accounts of all that is done and how every penny is spent. He is allowed a portion above and beyond his fair share of the assets as a fee for his services as well as any expenses he incurs in settling the estate.
Depending on the law he maybe able to cash out all the trusts to pay those debts.
If you are the executor you should already be talking to a lawyer. If you think the executor is doing something shade, you need to contact a lawyer
