in the US the state the person had the bank account takes the money and is held in an account that is published periodically, or available at any time for anyone who has a claim to that money and can prove it

It becomes part of your estate. So what you need to do now, is to make a will. Decide who you want to receive your possessions. It could be a church, it could be a charity, it could be someone who was a friend to you.
