Dear with no will

Single unmarried male dies with no will, no siblings and no children. 3 half cousins who are close to him are the only known relatives. Legal searches reveal 2 full blood cousins who did not know him at all. I know the full blood cousins take precedence but do they get all the estate or are half blood cousins entitled to any percentage?

In my opinion, it would be the full blood cousins.
As you will see from the link to determine the blood line superiority First Cousins would be the correct route.

Cousins descended from a full blood uncle/aunt would take all vs cousins descended from a half blood uncle/aunt.
