If any personal representative or other person interested in the estate of a decedent complains to the court in writing, verified by oath, that any person is suspected of having concealed, embezzled, smuggled, conveyed away or disposed of any monies, goods or chattels of the decedent or in which he had an interest, or has in his possession or knowledge any deeds, conveyances, bonds, contracts or other writings which contain evidence of or tend to disclose the right, title, interest or claim of the decedent to any real or personal estate or any claim or demand, or any lost will, the court shall cite the person to appear before the court and shall examine him on oath upon the matter of the complaint. If the person is not in the county where the decedent died or where letters have been granted he may be cited and examined either before the court of the county where he is found or before the court of the county where the decedent died or where letters have been granted. But if in the latter case he appears and is found innocent his necessary expenses shall be allowed him out of the estate.
